I moved from gnome-terminal to urxvt. I am used to having a right-click menu in gnome-terminal. Do such menus exist in urxvt?

I don't believe so, rxvt is a pretty minimal terminal emulator. If you want to split your terminal up and do more in one terminal, you should look into a terminal multiplexer like tmux or screen. – Rob Jun 10 '12 at 16:22

No, rxvt is not that kind of terminal emulator. You might find Sakura pleasing.

i don't know gnome-terminal menus, but urxvt have the ctrl+right click. You may need to select some text and AFAIK, those menu entries can be configured
