Maybe you can try to use xsel. The way I use is below:

;; use xsel to copy/paste in emacs-nox
(unless window-system
  (when (getenv "DISPLAY")
        (defun xsel-cut-function (text &optional push)
          (with-temp-buffer
                (insert text)
                (call-process-region (point-min) (point-max) "xsel" nil 0 nil 
"--clipboard" "--input")))
        (defun xsel-paste-function()
          (let ((xsel-output (shell-command-to-string "xsel --clipboard 
--output")))
                (unless (string= (car kill-ring) xsel-output)
                  xsel-output )))
        (setq interprogram-cut-function 'xsel-cut-function)
        (setq interprogram-paste-function 'xsel-paste-function)
        ))
