Hmmm, that windows key on my keyboard...

Hi again to everyone!

Like the wheel on my Logitech Mouse, I find that windows key on my keyboard highly useful... how does one get this to work under linux?

I'd appreciate any help... have a nice day

Thanks amigo... (though I think average me would find this a bit too technical)

Tried showkeys -s command got:
0xe0 0x5b (left windows key)
0xe0 0x5b (right windows key)

Anyway, followed the instructions on the howto to the letter (I think)


setkeycodes e05b 125
setkeycodes e05c 126 (am I doing this right so far?)

Hmmm... I don't know if I should have typed 0xe0 0x5b instead of e05b.

Now onto the loadkeys command...

.... now what?


keycode 125=?
keycode 126=?
(anyway how do you end this?)

Sorry - my puny brain, for some reason, cannot comprehend the howto this morning.

By the way, I apologize for the late response... my eyelids just got way too heavy...
