I am looking for a keyboard shortcut to raise a context menu using Ubuntu on a MacBook pro. Pressing the keyboard shortcut should have the same effect as right-clicking at the cursor location.

On Windows keyboards, there is a dedicated button for this near the space bar. I have also read about using shift+F10 or ctrl+space, but these have no effect on my system.

the key between right Alt + right Ctrl? –  hakermania Aug 1 '12 at 11:49
    
I think this would work if I had a full windows keyboard, but sadly I am limited to the keys provided on a MacBook. –  Bill Cheatham Aug 1 '12 at 16:04

Try Shift+Fn+F10. This works on Windows and Ubuntu in VirtualBox on OS X for me.

Thanks, but I'm not getting any luck with this! Maybe your OSX might be doing this interpretation rather than the Linux itself. –  Bill Cheatham Aug 20 '12 at 5:35
    
This worked on my MacBook Air running Ubuntu 10.04. Thanks! –  Waldir Leoncio Jul 15 at 22:58

I generally use the basic: Ctrl+F10
