I'd like to map it to Fn so that I can use DeadKeys. I hate having to save everything in HTML just so that I can use ý in pýr.

A few month ago I read an article stating that there now was a totally windows free keyboard on the market.
Don't remember the company selling them, but they replaced the windows keys with tux (the little penguin) I think.

On the right-hand-side of a Windows keyboard, between 'AltGr' and 'Ctrl' there is a Winkey and the 'Windows Menu Key'.

1) Does this work under Linux (never tried it, go to 2)

2) Does anyone ever use it?

I don't think I have ever used it.



PS. Perhaps Jeremy, being the nice kinda gut he is, could add some Linux keyboards to the 'Linux Questions Merchandise'.

Or, you can always just pop the key caps.

Yes and yes. With XModMap I remapped the two windows keys and the menu key to F13, F14, and F15. Then I configured sawfish to popup either the apps menu, an aterm, or "aterm -e mutt" depending on which was pressed.
