    Using windows key in Linux?


    My keyboard on my laptop has a "windows" key and a "context menu" key. Can I use those keys for Ion Window Manager, or for any other purpose. Ion Window manager is maped to several function keys which I need for other programs. I would like to remap Ion to use Win+F1, Win+F2,.. etc, key combinations to do various things. Can this bee done? Does linux recognize the windows key at all?

    Thanks for any help,

    - Bogdan

    Ok, I was able to figure out that the key codas for the window and menu keys are 115 and 117. But that does not really help me Does any one here have any experience with Ion config files?
