Bug Description

There are a number of hotkeys and function keys which don't work with Jaunty (can't test with Karmic just now). I haven't found a page detailing how to capture the keypress events, could someone help me with that?

Flat black keys across the top:

- Internet Search. Opens default internet search engine
- -
- Email. Opens default email application:
- - opens evolution, can't be configured to use Gmail
- Home. Opens default internet browser application:
- - this has been set wrongly to move the current tab to the home page, losing any unsaved content in that tab (all the text up to here for example
- VOIP. Opens default internet communication (VOIP) application:
- - currently does nothing

Now three audio related silver buttons:

- Media. Opens default media application:
- - Currently does nothing
- Volume Dial
- - Works
- Mute
- - Works

Back to those flat black keys:

- Play / Pause
- - Works fine for audio and video, tested with banshee and totem
- Previous Track
- - Works fine for audio and video
- Next Track
- - Works fine for audio and video
- Calculator
- - Works fine

A number of the function keys also don't work correctly:

- FN+F2 should open a text (MS Word logo) document
- - Does nothing
- FN+F3 should open a spreadsheet (MS Excel logo) application
- - Does nothing
- FN+F4 should perhaps open a database application, the logo is unknown to me.
- - Does nothing
- FN+F5 looks like a browser 'back' button
- - Does nothing
- FN+F6 looks like a browser 'forward' button
- - Does nothing
- FN+F7 should be a print button
- - While in Firefox (3.5) this is seen as F7 instead of FN+F7. So this needs investigating

So other than that this keyboard works fine! ...
