Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a piece of software that attempts to recognise when a hotkey has been pressed in order to activate functions, this program is designed for use on Windows systems so I am currently running it through the tool called 'Wine.'
When I am in the program it detects the key I wish to assign, it then allows me to save the settings which remain present once the program has been relaunched. However, both with and without the given program in focus it does not detect the given keystrokes.
I have attempted to make Wine use dinput.dll in native Windows form, rather the my system default however this did not resolve the issue. Even though it did make the program save my keystroke in a Windows format.
Would any of you please be kind enough to point me toward a solution, or a program that will enable me to send the events to this program which is run under Wine?
I've placed this within the newbie section firstly due to the fact I'm a newbie, and secondly because how new I am to Linux/Ubuntu may mean I'm missing some authorisation or other function staring me right in the face.
Thanks for having taken the time to read this post even if you cannot offer any help.
Do you MUST use Wine? Is running a virtual machine with windows an option? If it is - you will have much better luck with hotkeys - depending on the VM software you use, there will be only few key combinations that are not available (like Ctrl+alt+del)
