hid_core.c.diff(for kernel 188.8.131.52 see end of doc) from the driver CD and applying it to a copy of the kernel source code you have ready to be recompiled into a new blend of Linux kernel.
xev | grep "state 0x0, keycode" | uniq
keycode ### = NAMEwhere ### is the keycode number and NAME is the name you want to assign the key.
keycode 234 = CM_BACK keycode 233 = CM_FORWARD keycode 232 = CM_KILL keycode 231 = CM_RELOAD keycode 122 = CM_MAGNIFY keycode 162 = CM_PLAYPAUSE keycode 164 = CM_STOP keycode 144 = CM_PREVIOUSTRACK keycode 153 = CM_NEXTTRACK keycode 204 = CM_EJECT keycode 161 = CM_CALC keycode 236 = CM_MAIL keycode 130 = CM_HOME keycode 227 = CM_POWER keycode 188 = CM_CUT keycode 192 = CM_COPY keycode 248 = CM_PASTE keycode 138 = CM_REDO keycode 135 = CM_UNDO keycode 115 = CM_TUX keycode 116 = CM_MAILTO keycode 174 = CM_MINUS keycode 176 = CM_PLUS keycode 160 = CM_MUTE keycode 129 = CM_MEDIA
NAME :########where the ######## has to be unique in the file, I used the format 10090### where the final ### was the keycode and NAME is the identifer we assigned the key in the Xmodmap step above.

Now restart X and then in a console window type
And when you run
again, you can see all your new keycodes.
Note: each time you restart X you will need to tell xmodmap to load your .Xmodmap file so put the command in your ~/.xinitrc or equivalent.
Each window/desktop manager has its own way of allowing you to map keys to actions.
In KDE 3.3.1 go to "Control Center" and "Regional & Accessibility" and then either select "Keyboard Shortcuts" or "KHotKeys".
"Keyboard Shortcuts" allows you to assign keys to specific KDE actions and "KHotKeys" allows you to assign keys to applications, amongst other things.
I hope you found this useful, I had an interesting time finding out how to do the above !
any comments hate mail etc to
Kernel 184.108.40.206 (and possibly higher) please try the patch from hexten.net
Thanks goto Richard Grant for the Xorg 7, .xinitrc and other information.
Have not braved the >=Xorg 7 modular update ? fear not you can get the old files here :
XKeysymDB.extra-pre-Xorg7 (for /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XKeysymDB(or /usr/share/X11/XKeysymDB))
