TL;DR In most cases the Any key is the space bar.
Check your skills
sudo apt-get install xautomation sudo apt-get install xbindkeys printf "%s\n\t%s\n" "\"notify-send 'Any key'\"" "space" > ./foo xbindkeys -f ./foo
check your skills and after that
killall xbindkeys, maybe with copy'n'paste ;)
BTW, I have the Any key. Works great.
