Map menu key to menu in XFCE
#1
Bug 
When booting Ubuntu, the default terminal with CTRL+SHIT+F1 is too large for my screen. I cannot read the line I am typing on and miss also the beginning of the lines on the left side. This needs to be fixed, but as a safe fallback, I would like to use the terminal in XFCE.

However, with only two USB ports, many times I have the keyboard in one and a USB wifi dongle in the other. This prevents me from adding a mouse. The mouse I will only use to start a terminal in XFCE. To overcome this problem, please by default map the menu key on the keyboard to the menu action, that is the same as a right click with a mouse. Then with the keyboard I can select a terminal and do what I need to to.

I know this is for some a very specific case, but this mapping will make it so much more easy to work with the systems without the screen is fitted properly and a mouse is connected.
