Using xev to collect keycodes


Hey everyone,

I'm trying to get the extra keys on my multimedia keyboard to work. I've gotten most of them to work but the rest I need to get the keycodes to do it. When I check the website that I've been using to get this working it says to type xev in an xterm

When I type xev in terminal I just get command not found. I've looked to download it from my download mirrors for mandrake and tried a search for it on the internet. How do I get the xev command to work on my computer?

Thanks

it's probably on your CDs. Open mandrake's sofrware manager, and look for xev using the search functions. If there's no package named xev, look for packages that contain xev.

I tried searching through the install package program (the one that lets you search for packages and install them), manually searched the cd's. Checked by contents, didn't find anything even related to xev

Yeah, I tried that and it worked just fine. It didn't help me with the keyboard problem though. Thanks for the help.
