Microsoft confort keyboard

Hi I also have a microsoft wireless comfort keyboard. one of the ways you can get those extra media keys to go is to go to

Kmenu > Utilities > desktop > Control Center (personal settings) then select keyboard in the hardware section.

Once in keyboard prefs > Layout > -- select micorsoft Natural.

than back out into Control Center again and select keyboard shortcuts. you can then bind the keys you want to use.

A work of warning though, for some reason if i touch the pause key it freezes either my mouse and keyboard or my whole system, i havnt stuck around long enough to see which ones. and I dont know if the Flock key makes any difference. -- But i have to turn the machine off at the wall, the reset button doesnt send the kill command or anything like that. I have to remove power.

If anyone knows how to make that a worry of the past please fill me in, it sucks making a productive environment if a staff member only needs to touch pause to have to whole machine lock up..


binding, keyboard, linux, mouse, suse, wireless
