Binding special function keys?


Is it possible to bind non-standard keyboard keys to commands/X functions? I would like my plethora of laptop special command keys to actually do something such as standby mode, volume control, etc. Is there a way to accomplish this?

If you're using Dropline Gnome, there is an app under preferences called 'gnome-keybinding-properties' which should do some of the things you are thinking about.

OK, yeah I guess I should have specified what WM I'm using. I'm actually using FVWM. Is this something that would be WM-specific? If so, I can go to the official FVWM forum and ask there. I had thought that it may be an X, or even Slackware, ability.
