Selecting text


I usually select pieces of text on the screen running X with the mouse by pointing to it and then dragging to where the end is. The piece will turn blue. Then cntrl+c will copy the piece to the clipboard and cntrl+v will paste it.

I now have a strange situation that on one system running Stretch + Sid the piece of text does not turn color when selecting it.

Anybody know what to do in that case?
