Great tutorials here! I fixed the special buttons on my Logitech Cordless Desktop, thanx! First I had the same problems with the commands for XMMS, but I found a way around that. I use KDE 3.4 on SuSe 9.3, with XMMS 1.02.10. I did the same thing with putting extra items in the K menu and linking those items with commands and then to shortcut keys assigned earlier, the K menu editor:
etcetera, now INCLUDING the ampersand at the end of the command. I UNchecked the box for 'Enable launch feedback'; and the command is linked to a shortcut key 'XF86AudioStop' as was described in the tutorials.
I am not sure which part of the above did the trick
, but now everything works perfectly for XMMS, no revolving sand-clocks and no extra taskbar items! I hope that this helps for you as well....
