Hello, all.

I've been playing around with compiz-fusion a bit lately, and it's fun. My system is an Ubuntu Studio-type install, AMD64x2, Nvidia 8800GT, etc. The effects and environment are working very smoothly, for the most part (on a recent update of the Nvidia driver to 180.22...).

I was wondering if it is at all possible to map midi controllers to what are normally hotkey-controlled desktop features. I have several controllers, and often find myself wanting to run workspace switching and whatnot 'on the fly', during recording projects (I don't typically run any desktop effects while recording, but it's fun to experiment with).

Any thoughts?
