Analog of Ctrl+Esc


Hi Guys,
In windows we can press Ctrl+Esc to bring up the Start menu. Is there something similar in Linux.

Thankx in advance...

Depends on your WM and/or DE ...

In KDE try Alt-F1 ... :)

Try the other clicks on the desktop. Middle and right clicks do exist...

They call it point and click, but nobody knows how to click

Well Alt+F1 works fine in KDE..thanls for that.
I have two more questions

1) There is no option in GNOME for keeping windows on top, like there is in KDE.

2) I have a two button mouse: is there a way that I can emulate the third mouse button, I mean by using a Keyboard/Mouse Combo


Thankx in advance...

hmm, as for the third mouse button emulation, have you tried pushing both buttons at the same time? that works for me
