Keyboard Configuation : Recycling extra keys

Here I am going to explain

How to configure XWindow to assign Win and Menu key as a new modifier

(like Alt, Shift etc) and then use Windows shortcuts Win+F = Find ; Win+E = filemanager etc

Even further, why not reuse stupid “internet” and “email” keys, to sound volume control …

All params should works with any AmiloA Laptop :

see xmodmap page

ASSIGN [[ShortCut]]s

Well this point nothing happend, keys events must be grabbed using “xbindkey”

Debian :

apt-get install xbindkeys apwal
$EDITOR ~/.xbinkeyrc
# file://~/.xbindkeysrc
# xbindkeys --key
"apwal" # windows+menu key
  m:0x20 + c:117
  Mod3 + Menu
#Vol -5% # web key
"amixer -c 0 sset PCM  5%-"
#Vol +5% # email key
"amixer -c 0 sset PCM  5%+"
#Vol=0% # doent not work ... there arent modifiers ; maybe they should be
"amixer -c 0 sset PCM  0%"
 m:0x4 + c:236
 XF86AudioRaiseVolume    XF86AudioLowerVolume
# EOF file://~/.xbindkeysrc

then restart :


This is a base setttings file, I will add TV out and some common shortcuts… show me your files in the amilo group or …

[[XWindow]] < > BUG

Option          "XkbModel"      "pc104" # not pc105
In XFree86 4.3.0, the stock configuration data for the X Keyboard Extension
(XKB) was overhauled.  One of the few downsides to this much-needed update was
that the "< >" key commonly found on European keyboards stopped functioning.
Users of 102- or 105-key PC keyboards (as well as miniature and laptop
keyboards compatible with these models) should ensure that their keyboard is
configured accordingly in the XF86Config-4 file, using the "pc102" or "pc105"
XkbModel instead of "pc101" or "pc104", respectively.  U.S.-style PC keyboards
do not have a "< >" key, it is this additional key that distinguishes a pc102
keyboard from a pc101 keyboard, and a pc105 keyboard from a pc104 keyboard.
If your keyboard has a "< >" key, you probably have a 102- or 105-key model.
The "< >" key may not work if you do not configure your keyboard model
correctly.  You can use "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86" to change this
configuration parameter, or edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 directly.

sudo apt-get install console-data   console-tools  console-common kbd-compat
sudo apt-get install console-data ; dpkg-reconfigure console-data


Redesigned 5-Pack In Logitech’s new keyboard line, a narrower, more intuitive 5-Pack replaces the conventional 6-Pack. The traditional Insert key has been moved to the row of F keys, where it more rightly belongs. This reduces the chance of accidentally pressing the wrong key—to name just one among many benefits explained in this section.
