I have recently bought a new keyboard, and it has a lot of unused special keys - like "launch Excel", "launch Word", etc. I suspect there is a way to map the keypresses on those keys to some useful actions (currently, they do absolutely nothing).
How can I do this?
This is the usb keyboard. I found out that while most of the normal keys provide some info via the
/dev/input/event2 device, half the normal keys (not catchable by xev) do some action on
And there are other 9 keys that do not do anything on any of the input devices.
