 Multimedia/Internet Keyboards in GNU/Linux

"As the resident geek, I sometimes help new users making transition to GNU/Linux from other OS's. Over the years, I'd ask anyone who installed Gnu/Linux about which hardware devices that didn't work for them, most often it is 'Multimedia/Internet keyboards'. In this article, we'll configure one such keyboard using the Hotkeys program. Anthony Wong's Hotkeys is written to handle all those special keys provided by the Multimedia/Internet keyboards and launch programs associated with them.Though there are numerous ways to configure these keyboards in Gnu/Linux, Hotkeys is far easier to configure and its osd (on-screen display) is very similar to those available on other OS's."
