Dell XPS M1210 Keyboard


This keyboard is pretty slick on this computer, and it has a row of media keys on the front of it. This might be wishful thinking, but what does it take to get these things to work. I read another post, where it was able to get it working through SuSe's SAX2 program. We all know that slackware doesn't need some wasteful programs. I am sure that the program added some tag or loaded some module via the xorg.conf file. Can anyone help me out with the line that might help? Thanks.

It is in KDE's Control Center Assessability feature. Works great now!
