i am a newbie and have had Ubuntu 7.10 for six weeks now. Slowly i am implementing a few things, like my webcam und bluetooth mouse and now i am on to FN keys.
I have researched quite a bit and have sent queries with no definitive answers.
Can anyone maybe give me a tip or suggestion? It is deeply appreciated.
sorry, but there was a misunderstanding on my behalf in 2 ways:
1. originally i did not mean F1 to F12 but your reply brought me to that idea additionally - thank you.
but i did mean Fn F1 to Fn F12
2. i did misinterpret X Windows. Of course i am working with X windows,
so in installed xkeysw and also wanted to install xkeysw-configure
and i got the following error message:
Depends: python (<2.5) but 2.5.1-ubuntu2 is to be installed.
so in further step i installed
python-all ( which includes 2.4 and 2.5)
in each case the error message as above remained so that i couldn't
run the program in the terminal
which gave me the error message:Cannot open file .xkeyswrc
I assuming that is the configuration file which cannot be 'produced' since xkeysw-configure is not installable.
thank you for your patience and support
