Hey guys,

HOW do you RE-MAP function key such as <F1> to be <PAGE UP> ?

Basically I always need to <ctrl><alt><f1> then <ctrl><alt><f7> whenever my mouse dissapears (typical compiz bug); but Function keys doesn't work anymore in the linux that I'm using.

Thanks for the help !

For Gnome desktops: System ----> Prefrences ----> Keyboard Shortcuts

For KDE desktops: run kcmshell keys

Which distro are you running? I'm fairly certain it's already installed.

I believe Alan gave info specific to whatever he's running..as Keyboard Shortcuts for me is under system -> configuration.

You type it at a shell to invoke the KDE control module. From what I've read, its not listed in the control panel so you have to do it that way.

hi guys :)

Thanks for the help :) but i still can't find kcmshell anywhere. I'm using mandriva2010.x by the way.

What I've done is move my usb KVM switch to another usb port and the function keys came back ! Then i moved the KVM switch back to the original usb port and its working still :)

weird huh ?

and i almost was gonna ditch my kvm switch and just plug a regular ps2 style keyboard
