Well spotted. I went into khotkeys too, hoping to be able to
(finally) configure my keyboard to work as it did under KDE3,
but alas it only partially recognises the Logitech G15's extra
keys, and seems to be profoundly confused about the keys that
it does actually detect.
The G15 has three blocks of six keys - G1-G18. On MS-XP it can
also recognise the M1/M2/M3 buttons, which basically let you
have three different configurations for those 18 buttons. Plus
you can use a MR button to record macros. The M buttons didn't
work for me under KDE3, so I'm less annoyed about that aspect.
Anyhoo .. like you, I can't get much joy of the normal extra buttons.
It seems to think they are just things like Home, Reload, ScrollUp
and so on. Most of the buttons report as NoSymbol using xev,
and in khotkeys those are the ones that continue to report the
'qt doesn't have a clue' error message.
