Question Special keys dont work on Compaq presario laptop

Hi there,

I have a compaq presario M2000 laptop and have installed open SUSE 10 (KDE 3.5.1). My laptop has 4 extra keys on the keypad - a Volume Mute, Volume up, volume down and a Bluetooth/Wireless On/Off.

Except the wireless on/off, the other keys dont work.

How can I make them work?

Thx in advance
