TLC #17: [Keyboard & Multimedia] [Using those extra media function keyboards]

Greetings lads!

Stumbled upon this nice little program: Lineak standing for Linux support for Easy Access and Internet Keyboards

Step 1: Download and install
Either use the download page or... my favourite YUM!
$ sudo yum install lineak*
<< two files will be donwloaded and installed >>
<< lineakd and lineak_defaultplugin >>

Step 2: Configure your keyboard
$ lineakd -l
<< will list all supported keyboards >>
<< find yours, there will be a code correspondance in the first column >>

Step 3: Generate config file
$ lineak -c XXXX
<< where XXXX is your letter code from above >>

You will find in /home/username/.lineak a file named lineak.conf
It's your to edit with commands you would pass an application from cmd line like xmms --fwd to skip the next song in a playlist. Save when done.

Step 4: Start lineak deamon
$ lineakd&
<< & to run in background

Step 5: Add lineak in gnome session manager
$ sudo gnome-session-properties
<< get to last tab (Startup Program) and ADD lineak -b with order 50 (default) >>

All done, it's very nice to finally take advantage of those multimedia keys.
Extra functionnalities. lineak-defaultplugins
Code:
Macros

$ lineakd --plugin-list
Plugin default of type MACRO
  Description: Default EAK macros.
  EAK_EJECT
  EAK_OPEN_TRAY_SCSI
  EAK_OPEN_TRAY
  EAK_CLOSE_TRAY
  EAK_VOLUP
  EAK_VOLDOWN
  EAK_PCM_UP
  EAK_PCM_DOWN
  EAK_MUTE
  EAK_PCM_MUTE
  EAK_SLEEP
  EAK_SYM
Plugin mediadetect of type MACRO
  Description: Media Detect
  EAK_MEDIADETECT
If you make change to the lineak.conf file you need to reload the deamon
$ lineak --reload

I am impressed with X, he like many had a hard time reversing the M$ numbness and getting familiar with nix but look at him now!

Dude I'm itching to upgrade to FC4-test (3.90).
Have you tried it yet?

And since I updated udev pluging digicam and USB drive is a breeze. Ultimate plug and play.

I'm making more converts every day.
My father in law (50+ and a lawyer) wants me to install Linux on his home PC because he likes the open source philosophy! How's that...
My wife now runs Linux 100% of the time (since she got hit hard by one of those "internet" viruses that change your homepage, background and constantly pops up ad windows).

X'

No, it has problems inc. slow Gnome, gdm that spins CPU and other annoyances. Wait my brother.

Guys, this Lineak is really great.
If you don't have it and you have extra unused buttons on your keyboard, you need it!

X'

BTW: I was doing some updates on the Mandrake machine of my wife and I totally hosed the system. Big time! The kernel upgrade went bazooka. I had a kernel image in /boot but not the initrd.img; so I created one (mkinitrd cmd). Then the X server would not start. Using the previous kernel was of no help. Hours of troubleshooting the thing, editing config files, remaking symlink. Only to realize that somewhere along the road while updating I "upgraded" to Xorg while I was using XFree86... bad idea (there was no big green warning thought to my defense...). It didn't like being force to udev either... kept complaning. Totally hosed, I finally gave up though I think the system was salvageable for someone with a better understanding of the inner workings of the X system.
Burned the latest distrib (10.1) and installed witht "use current partitions", don't format /home.
Simple as hell. All settings were preserved. icon, links, mail, bookmarks, background, shortcut.
Really, why upgrade at all? Just reinstall. (Same distrib of course). the desktop was as it was left. Programs were all updated. Of course, that's on a generic install that as not been haxored too much. No good for the dnar of this world...
