Logitech Cordless Desktop LX300 kbd type


I wonder if i could make use of all special keys on that keyboard:

http://www.tones.be/productimg/5248_42c3d8c708bf9.jpg

Well, to start where i shoul... Basic keys work well, naturally, special buttons show that they work (syslog, dmesg), i know what to do to make use of them, but not all of them show that they live.

Keys living show something like that on syslog/dmesg:

Code:
atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0x91 on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e011 <keycode>' to make it known.
atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0x91 on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e011 <keycode>' to make it known.
atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0x91 on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e011 <keycode>' to make it known.
Easy and obvious what to do (dumpkeys and setkeycodes). Dead keys are... dead... nothing happens. And now, working keys are:

- Unfunctioned F1-F12 keys (there's a mode button to skip between FX and Unknown keys)
- Messenger key

Not working:

- Calculator
- Favorites
- Home
- Play/pause
- Stop
- Media
- Volume up
- Volume down
- Mute
- Rew
- FF
- E-mail
- Zoom
- Forward
- Back

So i wonder, how to make those dead buttons work, because i'd like to use all of them, or simply have such a possibility
Thanks for your help.

OK, I found some clue, yet I can't work it out well.

1. showkey -s <- we find button code
2. setkeycode <- we set that code to keycode (some free keycode from dumpkeys)
3. dumpkeys > some_file && vi some_file <- we edit the file to put something by our keycode

that was the first point i wasn't sure about... do we put smth a'la 'keycode 89 F37' (first 36 F's are used earlier)

4. xev <- shows codes for buttons under X
5. xmodmap -pke <- shows how xmodmap file should look like
6. vi myxmodmap <- add codes with how-they-work thing

that was the second point i wasn't sure about either... when I used that F37 some errors occured when:

7. xmodmap myxmodmap <-should load your changed part of xmodmap
8. now configure shortcuts for wmaker (ie...)
9. bang, doesn't work

Could someone take a look and tell me where i'm wrong? And how _exactly_ should i fight the keyboard?
