I'm trying to set up Linux to recognise the multimedia keys on the dot.station's keyboard.
I've gotten the keycodes for the multimedia keys using xev, apart from the 6th key across from the left, which seems to cause xev to behave weirdly, and doesn't report a keycode (at least not under Suse of Mandrake distributions of Linux). Does anyone know the keycode for this key?
I'm intending to use XHotKeys, or XBindKeys to map the buttons to lauching applications, and the 'rectangle' key as a modifier to access them as F1-F12 using xmodmap. Has anyone already done this, or does anyone know of a better way? Ideally having a separate selectable keyboard would be better - but that looks (provisionally) quite complicated to set up.
Also, does anyone know how to set up modifiers for mouse keys? Like you have for Apples, where you press a modifier key (like Alt) while clicking the mouse button to indicate the right mouse button is being pressed?
Sorry about all the questions
