Hi there,

I have successfully installed fusion on my Macbook Pro Core 2 Duo running Hardy. Is there any way I can map the "expo all windows function" to F7 key as in MacosX. I tried setting it in settings, when i press it It displays XF86Display but the key doesn't work? When I press Fn-F7 it maps to F7 and works fine but I want it only in F7 without the need to press Fn key first

Do I have to manually configure sth?

Thanks,
Christos

I donno whether that is possible or not.. May be you can search pommed in this forum..

I get expo plugin into action when I move the mouse to right bottom of the screen..

That behavior matches how it works in OSX. The F-keys are accessed by first pressing Fn. The default operation is to complete it's "special" function. This is a known issue and can be switched. There is a bug report here:
