    Logitech keyboard

    I've looked through the settings etc for Gnome and haven't found an answer to this there.

    I've got a keyboard with the extra buttons for email, www, mute etc and I can't find out how to allocate them to the relevant applications.

    Can someone point me in the right direction please.

    RH 9, gnome.

    Thanks

    Keith

    Re:Logitech keyboard

    Since I've never had a fancy keyboard, I'm not sure how relevant this is, but you could try it.

    http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO...HOWTO.html#s14

    Pay particular attention to the "setkeycodes" and "loadkeys" functions. Again, not sure if it will work, but you can try

    *very* simple, actually...
    In my x config under the keyboard section i have:
    Option "XkbModel" "chicony"
    because thats my model. you will probally use logitech or something.. maybe you need a model number there too
    Now when x loads up again (...) run xev in a terminal. give it the focus and start tapping those keys. a (trimmed) output for my www one is:
    Code:
    state 0x10, keycode 178 (keysym 0x1008ff18, XF86HomePage), same_screen YES,
    (3rd line)
    so the id of the key is XF86HomePage
    now you just need to bind the key to the application.
    What windowmanager/desktop environment do you use?

    Re:Logitech keyboard

    Alastair, you lost me right after the words "very simple actually" ;D

    I'm using Gnome and sawfish.

    This is what I get when i press the www key:

    KeyPress event, serial 25, synthetic NO, window 0x1c00001,
    root 0x3a, subw 0x0, time 42634927, (905,551), root911,594),
    state 0x10, keycode 178 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes: ""

    KeyRelease event, serial 25, synthetic NO, window 0x1c00001,
    root 0x3a, subw 0x0, time 42634996, (905,551), root911,594),
    state 0x10, keycode 178 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes: "

    What next?

    Re:Logitech keyboard

    ok,
    in /etc/X11/XF86Config
    under the Identifier "Keyboard0" bit
    add a line, or change it to
    Option "XkbModel" "logiik"
    (It might be something like pc102)

    Then restart X and try xev again

    Re:Logitech keyboard

    Ok, I've added the line as specified and restarted X. Running xev, I get the following for the WWW Key:

    KeyPress event, serial 25, synthetic NO, window 0x3400001,
    root 0x3a, subw 0x0, time 210242, (402,686), root414,749),
    state 0x0, keycode 178 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes: ""

    KeyRelease event, serial 25, synthetic NO, window 0x3400001,
    root 0x3a, subw 0x0, time 210323, (402,686), root414,749),
    state 0x0, keycode 178 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes: ""

    Question: should i have commented out the previous line in XF86Config or is it happy with both?
