View Full Version : [kubuntu] Swap Fn-keys and Multimedia-keys for wireless keyboard

January 13th, 2012, 04:17 PM

On my laptop, multimedia keys are accessible via the function keys by pressing an extra Fn button

On my wireless keyboard, the FUNCTION keys are acccessible via the MULTI MEDIA KEYS... by pressing an extra Fn button.. &$#*&$*#lAAARGGGG

How can I swap these around? I tried xmodmap but that doesn't seem to preserve keyboard shortcuts that I assigned in KDE. IE on my laptop I have F8->ZOOM. But when on the wireless keyboard I reassign MUTE->F8 using xmodmap, pressing the MUTE button on the wireless, doesn zoom the desktop as it should. .hmmmmm
