No, it does absolutely nothing. I've mapped keysyms for a multimedia
keyboard with xmodmap before, so I know what I'm doing there. There's a
linux driver program ( http://g15tools.sourceforge.net/) which allows you to
use everything, including the LCD screen on the keyboard. Unfortunately it
requires linux kernel support to work, which obviously I can't give it in
FreeBSD...any ideas? Really keen to just be able to use the extra keys, dont
care about the LCD :-P
Let me just add to that: I've compiled g15tools and g15daemon and installed
them in FreeBSD...when I run the g15daemon program i get:
An Error Occured - 2 : ( Unable to initialize keyboard ) received
Which I think is because it tries to load itself into the linux kernel at
