Yeah, run:
Code: [Select]
xed ~/.config/peppermint-control-center/xbindkeys.conf
find the 3 section that currently read
Code: [Select]
"xfce4-popup-whiskermenu"
    Alt+F1

"xfce4-popup-whiskermenu"
    Control+Escape

"xfce4-popup-whiskermenu"
    Super_L
and change them to
Code: [Select]
"lxpanelctl menu"
    Alt+F1

"lxpanelctl menu"
    Control+Escape

"lxpanelctl menu"
    Super_L
SAVE the file, then log off/on (or reboot)

That key should now open the lxpanel menu.
