Keyboard question


I have a genius keyboard that has 3 buttons ( on/off , standby, and the third i don't know) . I never used them , neither on windows nor on linux and since i'm having a shutdown problem (i can't turn off my computer like i used to ...now i have to switch power off from the stabilizer box because my on/off button doesn't work at all ) i would like to know if i can make any use of these buttons . lastly i also would like to point that yesterday i tried one of them at logout and i got this message:

Quote:
keyboard : unknown scancode e0 5e
would it be possible to make them work at all ? thanks

BTW can anyone tell me if i have to change anything on the bios ( cause i set it to default mode ) so that i can correctly switch my machine off ?

thanks a lot

I downloaded lineak (lineakconfig.tgz) but i'm having a small problem installing it :

i'm getting about the same message on lots of files
...
Quote:
./usr/local/share/lineakconfig/pixmaps/LTCDP.xpm
./install/
./install/doinst.sh
./install/description
tar: .: Could not change access and modification times: Operation not permitted
tar: .: Cannot change mode to 0755: Operation not permitted
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
...............................some lines from another install of a program to work along with it (lineakd.tgz)

etc,etc...

i just thought this might help you help me .
does these lines mean i have to give the said permission to all the above in order to proper install ? thanks

Try unpacking it in your home directory, you don't have to unpack software to a specific place and you can do an install from your home.
