Multimedia Keys on an Dell Vostro 1510 - SuSE11.1


I can’t get working multimedia keys on my laptop (Volume Up/Down Fn+PageUp, Fn+PageDown and the keys on a front panel). It works in Kubuntu, and I tried to compare fdi files (/usr/share/hal/…) - they look identical for the both system.

I can scan codes for these keys, but don’t know how to use the result.



well, I’ve resolved my problem. Maybe it will be useful for other vostro 1510 owners.

serge@linux-zwx1:~>cat ~/.Xmodmap
keycode 176 = XF86AudioRaiseVolume
keycode 174 = XF86AudioLowerVolume
keycode 160 = XF86AudioMute
keycode 162 = XF86AudioPlay
keycode 164 = XF86AudioStop
keycode 144 = XF86AudioPrev
keycode 153 = XF86AudioNext

serge@linux-zwx1:~>/usr/bin/xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap

PS. KDE 4.2 - Mute doesn’t work anyway, but Volume Rise/Lower, Play/Stop etc work correctly.
