The general name for the signal you want to give is apparently
"secondary click." There are several ways to do this with a trackpad:
1. "Control-click" (hold down the "control" button and click.
2. Use the "Trackpad" preference pane (available through System
Preferences) to choose one of several ways: a two-finger click, or a
click in one corner of the trackpad.
