I am currently working on a way to create some kind of thinclient environment under Linux Mint. So the user should only be able to double-click on the shortcut on the desktop and connect via RDP on a certain server.

The shortcut keys have been remapped, the taskbar/panel is locked, but now I can't find a proper solution to disable the right mouse button including the context menu.

What I did was to disable the right mouse button via xmod and remapped a non existing button on it. It worked, but (obviously) the right mouse button didn't work inside the rdp session.

I also didn't find any ways to disable the whole context menu in Linux Mint (which I'd be completely fine with if I could disable it)

Is there a chance to disable the (mouse) context menu or the right mouse button event (only in Linux, but still available in RDP)?
