Okay, I going to ask this question a different way to see if anyone can offer help or suggestions to mapping the keys on a laptop keyboard . I know someone here must have remap or map a special function key. If so, please advise me as to how to go about it.
Thanks for any help you can offer. Bullitt
Which desktop environment are you using?
I'm using PCLOS 2010.10. It works outstanding, however, I'm not sure if the keys are even being read my the keyboard scanning routine. I have tried configure input actions under custom shortcuts, when I hit one of the special function keys, i.e. browser key it does not show any response. I also tied combining it with the cntl key, still no luck. However, when I try the email key, it show input and I can assign an action to start email program. I plan to review the material parnote pointed out, I would really like to get those keys working as they are designated on the keyboard.
