As an example: I do have a Microsoft Natural Multimedia keyboard, with all kinds of buttons on it. Also, it supports additional use of the F1-F12 keys on it, by using the F Lock key. As i know how to use the xmodmap program, i have now 30 keys 'extra' available. All of those keys are 'configurable' in KDE, including the 'send, reply, fwd' keys. There is no way i can get Gnome or Evolution to understand that when i press the 'reply' button, it should reply to the message in Evolution. This looks like a lack of flexibility right now. Those keys are available on the keyboard, so why don't use those? Now i can understand that people will reply, why i buy such a keyboard. Well, the only thing Microsoft can build, are keyboards and mice. The rest sucks... And because i did have one of the first 'natural' keyboards, i am hooked to it. So this is why i bought a new one. (After 7 years using the old one).You can use lineak http://lineak.sourceforge.net/ to map those extended keys to anything you can specify at the shell prompt, plus a few other things. I've got the volume knob, standby button, cd controls and all those useless web buttons working on my HP multimedia keyboard.
This i got working too. But now i am looking for a way to tell GNOME, or EVO, that i would like to map key 'F35' to the 'reply' (now ctrl+r) keystroke. This i cannot find anywhere in the Gnome setup/config, nor in the Evolution config. As i look at kde, all programs give you the option to assign keys to functions, just like reply, new, forward, etc. I got those working ok... So probably, this is causing the babylonian mess :-)
Your sig is very long.
Taken care of that :-) Regards, Jacco van Koll Slackware Linux Certified Engineer ________________________________________________________________________
