I'd like to setup some hotkeys/media-keys that launch something when pressed. I need this, for instance, to be able to control volume while some full-screen application is launched, and all hotkeys set by my WM (KDE) are not working.
I personally use xbindkeys. But, then again, I don't use GNOME or KDE.
Do you know if the media keys work in Gnome? (To eliminate a WM issue of coarse). Which version of KDE? There seems to be an issue with KHotkeys in some versions.
