Re: the best way to handle multimedia keys under KDE 3.5
First of all save your xmodmap:
xmodmap -pke > ~/Xmodmap.save
Then you need to find out the keycode for the keys. Open a shell and start
xev. If you press "A" you should get something like:
KeyPress event, serial 23, synthetic NO, window 0x2800001,
root 0x62, subw 0x0, time 3131034, (-212,59), root:(276,76),
state 0x0, keycode 38 (keysym 0x61, a), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 1 characters: "a"
So the keycode is 38. Now edit the saved Xmodmap.save and give every
multimedia key a name, for example F12-F20. If you move Xmodmap.save to
~/.Xmodmap it should be loaded automatically on startup. If you want to load
it for testing use
Unfortunately I don't know a program, which does all that automatically...
