MintMenu on XFCE: how to bind it to release Super_L instead?

Postby rkmugen on Sat Jan 19, 2013 6:58 pm

I have enabled the Mint Menu on Mint 13 XFCE to be called up right when I press the "Windows key" on my keyboard. However, the way it behaves isn't quite how I want it. Instead, is there a way to call up the Mint Menu only when the "Windows key" is RELEASED? Here's more detail of how I'd like it to work....

  • Windows Key held down: Nothing... but it should still allow for other bindings involving the Windows key, essentially something like Super_L+(any other key)
  • Windows Key released (only): Display Mint Menu.
  • Windows Key pressed and released: Display the Mint Menu.

Or is the "" not capable of distinguishing key presses vs. key releases?

EDIT: For right now, I'm using CTRL+Super_L to call up the MintMenu, and then Super_L+L to call up the xfce4-session-logout window. It's not a bad workaround, but still...
My setup:
    *Linux Mint 13 XFCE 32-bit (Until the next LTS release)
    *Linux Mint 15 XFCE (RC) 32-bit (Tried...Failed)
    *Compaq Presario V2000 (from 2006) - Intel 1.5GHz (Pentium M) - 2 GB RAM - Intel 82852/855GM integrated video (i915)- WiFi
