Maybe a more elegant solution would be to write a small C program that
- put a tray icon,
- when icon is clicked, use XGrabPointer() to get the next click,
- once got, ungrab pointer and send sytnetic X events ButtonPress and
ButtonRelease that simulate a right-click
This may be enhanced by showing a menu on a "long click" on the tray icon,
and use that to simulate more events - middle-click, double-clicks, etc
Anybody wishes to write such a program? :)
