Identifying and Mapping/Binding key strokes (WLAN power on/off, Fn key)
K, this is about my laptop keyboard, but in general it's about linking/identifying certain keys and making them do tasks.
I wouldn't care about the Fn at all if it weren't for the fact that without it I have no control over my internal wireless NIC's power (on/off). Normally when I turn off and turn on the system, the power state of the NIC remains what it was, however, in a hard poweroff, the state sometimes changes from on to off, and as a result I no longer have a wireless card without booting into windows and hitting "Fn + Pwr for WLAN." So, I've looked around, and found apps which will bind keys to certain functions. The problem is, how do I know what to bind my function key to, to poweron my wireless card? I would be satisfied with a script which I could run from the Cmd line to turn this card on/off. I was also wondering how one would manually bind keys to actions, and how do you identify those keys to be bound? So, how do I know the location and ID of my Fn key etc...
Some details on my system:
Compaq Presario 3017cl
LAN-Express IEEE 802.11b PCI (hostap_pci driver)
OS RedHat 9
