Hello again.. My toshiba laptop came with "media keys" on the Keyboard.. A play button, a start the web browser button, and a volume knob that isn't directly wired into the sound card. Obviously, none of them are automatically set up by Linux. I need to run a piece of software that can tell me the ANSI codes for these buttons when I push them, and then I can configure GNOME to make them do something. Are there any HOWTOs for this kind of thing? Any advice helps, Andrew.
