I'm trying to bind Sun keys, for specificity, say, keycode 140 (keysym 0x1005ff71, SunFront), to a KWin operation (raise/lower, but it doesn't matter).Trying to use that key in any shortcut just display a dialog of The key you just pressed is not supported by Qt.

I've set my keyboard layout to Sun... Type 6. The only reasonable trail on this I can find is https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=182672, and its been open since 2009 to no resolution.

This Fedora 20, with all latest updates. Seen the same on OpenSUSE.

  • Maybe it's actually a Qt bug, then? – user1686 Sep 15 '14 at 7:27
  • @grawity from what the bug link says, looks like it is (IMO, more of a missing functionality than an outright bug). My question still stands - on how to do just that. – Pawel Veselov Sep 15 '14 at 8:20

As a work-around, by editing the keymap you can bind the Front key to an unused logical key that's currently supported by Qt.
