Description Paul M.Rogers 2005-07-30 12:38:52 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.3.0)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
Compiler:          GCC 
OS:                Linux

The shortcut key for Pop-Up Context Menu seems as tho it cannot be changed from the default "menu" button, else it does not work. After trial and error I discovered the "menu" button is actually numerical key "5" on keyboards that don't have a menu button. Perhaps this should be clearly documented somewhere if it isn't already.

Problem still exists in KDE 4.6.2: 
there exists no "Show context menu" action in the "Standard Keyboard Shortcuts - KDE Control Module". 

The menu key (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menu_key) works for me on a desktop PC. Ony my laptop, though, the key does not exist on the keyboard. 

So this seems to be hardwired somewhere. That's bad if you want to avoid using the mouse to ease your mouse-arm...
