i am running Kubuntu 10.10 on my WeTab Tablet PC. As this Tablet has no mouse (but a touchscreen), I would like to configure Kubuntu in a way that allows to perform a right-click.

In Ubuntu (not Kubuntu), there is an option to just hold the left-click for about 3 seconds in order to perform a right-click (Mouse => Accessibility => "Trigger secondary click by holding down the primary button").

I can't find something similar in Kubuntu...

Have you checked under System Settings > Input Devices > Touchpad (Tapping tab)?

I don't have a table PC but my laptop has a touchpad that gives options to make parts of the pad behave as a button.

thanks for your help, Dirk, but unfortunately, this field is all grey. I have no chance to do some settings there... :( – Produnis May 31 '11 at 15:09
:( thats sorry, maybe look for a app that can give you this functionality? – Dirk Hartzer Waldeck May 31 '11 at 15:37

Currently it looks like this is only available for a Unity/Gtk/Gnome based desktop.

If you can find any solution, you may use "Menu Key" in a onscreen keyboard like "Kvkbd" or "Onboard".
