Acer Aspire 5630
I want to know if it's possible to get my special buttons to work properly. I can't seem to find a guide for my laptop that's specific to suse.
I have managed to install the acerhk module from the offical opensuse repository.
keycode 148 = XF86PButton
keycode 149 = XF86EButton
keycode 224 = XF86DimButton
keycode 225 = XF86UpButton
I have tried to use xmodmap to map those keys. However it complains that the names are invalid.
xmodmap: /usr/local/share/xmodmap.custom:1: bad keysym name 'XF86PButton' in keysym list
xmodmap: /usr/local/share/xmodmap.custom:2: bad keysym name 'XF86EButton' in keysym list
xmodmap: /usr/local/share/xmodmap.custom:3: bad keysym name 'XF86DimButton' in keysym list
xmodmap: /usr/local/share/xmodmap.custom:4: bad keysym name 'XF86UpButton' in keysym list
xmodmap: 4 errors encountered, aborting.
Also how do I then map a key to execute a program for example?
My guess it is looking in a file called XF86keysym.h. It can exist in many different locations. In it is where things like XF86****** is defined. If it is me I would just make things like XF86WWW or others that exist in the file. It doesn't really matter for the most as to what each is called as far I have used it except for XF86VolumeRaise and XF86VolumeLower if you are using KDE. There is a util running called kmilo that takes over this for volume if mapped to these. It can be accessed from the control center.
I missed your info on system as 64bit. Looking at the bottom of the developers page mentions things not working in 64 bit OSes.
My apologies that info is for my desktop not my laptop. I have actually found a way of doing what I want using a program called keytouch. It has native support for many keyboard. However if doesn't support it, there's a change you use the editor to try program the keyboard. It's a case of pressing a button you want to map and whether it detects the key press. There are on screen instructions too.
