Description Thomas J. Baker 2004-05-12 16:28:56 UTC

Description of problem:
I'm not sure which component to file this against but I believe that
since switching to xorg-x11, my keyboard shortcuts for the multimedia
keys on my Dell keyboard no longer work. At one point during the beta
of FC2, I was able to use the keyboard applet to set my keyboard to
Dell and then use the Keyboard Shortcuts applet to set things like
Volue Mute , Up, and Down to appropriate multimedia keys. Now with the
same settings, those keys don't register in that applet. They are not
recognized. The input layer is not seeing the keys and doesn't seem to
be able to be configure to see them.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set keyboard to dell in keyboard applet
2. try to set keyboard shortcuts

Actual Results:  keys are not recognized

Expected Results:  keys are recognized and my mute button works

Additional info:

this worked at some point in the test cycle
