I like the different desktop environments and tend to gravitate to KDE most, but also enjoy the Gnome, XFCE and LXDE environments as well. However, only KDE works with my shortcut keys to increase and decrease sound volume. On my Dell Inspiron 1564 I use the F8 and F9 for down and up volume, respectively. As I said, in KDE they work perfectly without any configuration on my part.
How do I make that same thing work in the other DE's? I can install ACME to make it work in LXDE, but then I'm stuck with ACME in KDE as well. Is there a method to have a single way of using those keys for the same purpose in all DE's?
