I for my sins, have a Dell Inspiron 8000,
this has some extra buttons on the top which are basically extra
keys on the keyboard .. I have used xev to determin their output and
then used xmodmap to map them onto
XF86Audio[Play|Stop|Prev|Next] .. when I call up the shortcuts menu
from the gnome control panel and select 'grab' and then press the key,
the menu correctly spots 'XF86AudioPlay' etc .. so far so good.
when I bring up the gtcd tool, and go to keybindings, attempting to bind
one of these keys to a function clears the selection and it does not bind
the key to that function even when restarted.
additionally, in ~/.gnome/gtcd in the section [keybindings] the entry
next to the key is then blank .. I tried various entries but nothing
any clues or is there some layer of mappin gmissing.
or can I call direct shortcut events such as gtcd --next_track or some
such mysterious incantation from the 'shortcuts'->'customize audio or
