Why does the COPY and Paste for the Middle Mouse Button feature not work in the GNOME Desktop, yet does in other Desktop Environments like KDE? The Middle Mouse Button Copy and Feature works elsewhere, thus far I have ever seen.

This looks like an OS issue, not a LibreOffice issue. Is this on Ubuntu? If so you could try this on AskUbuntu.

Try start libreoffice with full path eg. /usr/bin/libreoffice --writer and try again. Worked for me.

It actually works for me "out of the box", Ubuntu (Gnome) 18.04, LibO Version:; Build ID: 1:6.0.3-0ubuntu1.
