KDE 4.1 vs laptop buttons


I'm running kde 4.1 from current and it looks really good. I have a problem, before, with 3.5, i wrote a simple script that i put in /home/user/.kde/Autostart to use some of the button of my laptop to control the volume

Code:
xmodmap -e 'keycode 176=XF86AudioRaiseVolume'
xmodmap -e 'keycode 174=XF86AudioLowerVolume'
xmodmap -e 'keycode 160=XF86AudioMute'
and it worked well.
Now with kde 4.1 it doesn't work, what can i do?

Do you still have KDE3.5 as well? If so perhaps you should put that script in /home/user/.kde4/Autostart

I remember reading that the ACPI buttons (Play, Stop, Next, Mail, Browser, Standby, Suspend, etc) are still yet to be supported in KDE 4.x. I also remember reading that it is supposed to be completed for KDE 4.2 but should be backported to KDE 4.1.x. I could be wrong about this, as it's sorta late here, but, just what I remember right now.

you can configure them in the kde system settings tool

it's somewhere in keyboard settings, you need to configure them as shortcut keys related to kmix.
(I would give more detail, but I'm on kde 3.5 now)

I've followed the README, so i removed kde 3.5 before installing 4.1.

I'm going to investigate about that.

However thanks to all
