I read this: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Use_Multimedia_Keys
in hopes of getting my quickplay, mute button, and volume keys to work. but i have no idea what to look for.
In ubuntu it worked automatically.
I have a Compaq V3000 and use this driver for windows: HP Quick Launch Buttons
the mute button also turns red when the volume is muted, and will be blue when the sound is on.
any help is appreciated, basically this is the last thing to getting a fully operational system (first linux where it was on par with windows).
