Well, I hope for every distribution and developers to move to Wayland as soon as possible (so we can get rid of this 25 years old X crap), but in the meantime is there a chance to have keycodes > 255 working with X without having to poke at input.h every now and then? It there a solution to easily remap those keycodes so they can be seen by X? I'm trying to figure out whether it is possible via udev but I came to nothing at the moment. I think that multimedia keyboards are now too widespread, a workaround (and an howto) is really needed. It's just ridiculous having a simple thing like a keyboard key not working, in 2011!!!
