I've got to problems, the first being that I can't use the multimedia keys on my keyboard. I've got a Microsoft Natural Keyboard Pro which, other than the fact that it's made by MS, is quite good. Currently I've got XkbModel set to microsoft in XF86Config. What I'd like to do is to bind them to control xmms amongst other things and since I'm using Fluxbox I have to edit the keys file, but this is where the problem lies, binding keys isn't hard, I've done it lots of times, it's just that you have to know the key names. Using xev to find out the key name doesn't work, it only returns NoSymbol. Is there anyone who has done this, or anyone who's got any idea of what to do. I'm running Slack 9.1 if it matters btw.
My second problem is of a similar nature, I'd like to get the side buttons of my mouse to work in a useful fashion, namely as back and forward buttons in browsers, I've got a shitty A4Tech Optical GreatEye WheelMouse, but it does the job.
I tried setting the xkbmodel to microsoftpro, which is meant to work with ms natural keyboard pro, though all of the keys didn't work. I also tried editing /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/inet, though that didn't work either, but now it works like a charm.
I am having the same issue :
cd . && /bin/sh /home/narooze/stuff/temp/untarred/lineakd-0.8/admin/missing --run autoheader
Can't locate object method "path" via package "Autom4te::Request" at /usr/bin/autom4te line 81.
autoheader: /usr/bin/autom4te failed with exit status: 1
make: *** [config.h.in] Error 1
I was never able to compile lineak, though I solved my problem. What I had to do was setting my xkbmodel to "microsoftpro" in XF86Config, though that obviously won't work if you don't actually have that keyboard. After I'd done that all the keys still wouldn't work, so I used xmodmap to set these right.
