Cannot figure how to get a mouse event to cause a keystroke
I have a Logitech Media Play mouse with many buttons. I'm using xbindkeys to create some shortcuts to programs e.g. firefox, gnome-terminal--these work wonderful. What I cannot figure out is how to get the buttons to work for the media player(Ubuntu>System>Keyboard Shortcuts>Sound). I set shortcuts using my win key and letters, hoping to use xbindkeys to send out a keystroke. I have tried to use xmacro but to no avail. xdotool was not helpful, I think it may be outdated(desktop/workspace functions did not work).
My preferred option would be to get mouse events to keystrokes working with xbindkeys and program x(x being whatever works); however, just getting my media buttons to interact with the media play is my ultimate goal.
This is my first "New Tread"
Posting pointer are most appreciated.
Synaptic is still my friend
I finally found my answer. One last try searching Synaptic turned up btnx. Thank you btnx author for creating the exact program I wanted--GUI and everything. Finally this 2 week-long search has come to an end.
