Mmedia keyboard


I have a so called multimedia keyboard, and i would like to use at least the windows and the menu??? keys under X ( e.g. to make shortcuts ) and maybe also the other keys on the top.

Is there a way do to so?

Thanks in advance.

there is a way to setup those types of keyboards... even setting up the mail and internet keys is possible.

do some searching through this forum... I know there was a a post about this about a month ago.

here's some links pulled from google to help get you started:
http://www.win.tue.nl/~aeb/linux/kbd/scancodes.html
http://www.linuxgazette.com/issue55/henderson.html

there's also a mini howto... and its in italian so it should be able to help you. I can't read it though... don't suppose you can translate it to english and republish?
