Smile How to use extra keys in GNU/Linux


Happ Newyear to All!,
I got a logitech 104 Keyboard which has got two keys without any function assigned.these are 'super or windows logo keys' between ALT and CTRL.Now, i am running Debian GNU/Linux Sarge and Running GNOME v2.8.3.Will it be possible to Display the Applications menu by pressing the super key.Someone will point to the steps for doing this...
i ran a command xev for the values of super key heres the o/p:
Code:
cosmic:~# xev
.................
KeyPress event, serial 25, synthetic NO, window 0x1400001,
    root 0x3f, subw 0x0, time 1042934, (233,465), root:(239,536),
    state 0x10, keycode 115 (keysym 0xffeb, Super_L), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyRelease event, serial 28, synthetic NO, window 0x1400001,
    root 0x3f, subw 0x0, time 1043077, (233,465), root:(239,536),

This is what i do in KDE 3.2. You may find a suitable option in GNOME.

In KDE Control Center go to Keyboard Shortcuts under Regional & Accessibility option. Here you can define shortcuts to any keys( including win key) by editing the current keyboard scheme. You can also select any predefined keyboard scheme like KDE Default with 3 or 4 modifiers, Windows Scheme with win key etc.
