No chance to find the 'dell-multimedia-buttons ...
- Hi to you,
may be some one has find a way to 'grep' these multimedia buttons on
top of the computer. I have 2 volume buttons which in function with
'i8kutils' but the other ones (x4) are out of function. In former
times i could give in the term "xev" and then i was able to find the
right number for each button; but now in "kernel-2.6" there were only
an output by '/var/log/messages' with the infomation: "... unknown key
released ... code 0x81 on isa0060/"; and nothing more.
If someone has found a solution - i would like to hear about it!
Cheers --Thomas Rump
- Using gnome, I mapped the multimedia keys simply using the Keyboard
Shortcuts preferences dialog to map the keys to the actions I wanted
performed. Works like a charm.
