Binding keyboard shortcuts to the "Menu" key?

Postby scottrabin on Sat Jan 19, 2013 1:13 am

I recently installed Linux Mint 14 (upgrading from 12, clean install) and have gotten everything back to normal except my keyboard shortcut. I remember having to do something special to get Mint to recognize the "Menu" key (that normally opens context menus) to function as a valid key for a keyboard shortcut.

Menu -> Preferences -> Keyboard -> [Keyboard Shortcuts] -> [Custom Shortcuts] shows "Launch Terminal" bound to "Menu", but pressing the Menu key does not invoke a terminal.

Restarting did not fix the issue.

Menu -> Preferences -> Keyboard Layout -> [Layouts] -> [Options] -> [Alt/Win Key Behavior] is set to "Hyper is mapped to Win-keys" : still no dice.

I can't remember what I did to get it to work last time, and 30 minutes of Googling only turned up the above 3 solutions - none of which worked.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
