Thread: Setting Keycodes
Enjoy an ad free experience by logging in. Not a member yet? Register.
I've recently bought a new keyboard, the Logitech Cordless Desktop LX 500. I've been setting it up with lineakd, and all is going well so far.
However, there are a few keys that are not recognized by xev, that according to the documentation, I must assign keycodes to manually.
We'll take the Messenger key for example. When I press it and check dmesg, I have the following output:
atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0x91 on isa0060/serio0). atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e011 <keycode>' to make it known. atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0x91 on isa0060/serio0). atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e011 <keycode>' to make it known.
The closest that I can find to my key is a key called KEY_CHAT, which is assigned to keycode 216.
So now the question. Can I safely run
setkeycodes e011 216
Thanks in advance!
