Reassign Context Menu Key

Post by iIMMIi » Sun Jul 22, 2018 7:36 am

Hey all :)
Is there a way to reassign the context menu (the right click menu, not the cinnamon menu) to another key in Cinnamon (3.8.8)? I have a new laptop without a context menu key...
Btw, I noticed that this key has ceased to work in nemo file manager, is there any way to fix this?

Thanks for any ideas, you're awesome!

Context menu key can be reassigned.
What's your LM version and keyboard layout?
Where do you want to reassign context menu? (keys like Insert, Home or Scroll Lock can also be remapped if you don't use them)

Nevermind, edited /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/pc, remapped LCTR to menu, works fine :)
