FVWM, making laptop multimedia (sound) keys work

leave a comment »

I was giving fvwm a spin on my laptop. Of late I have grown to like fvwm.

Problem statement: Making volume / multimedia keys of the laptop work in fvwm

Well the following two pages documents how it is to be done —

1. Figuring out the key-codes for your multimedia / sound keys and including these in your .Xmodmap : howto-link

2. Map these keys to alsa-mixer commands in your .fvwm2rc: howto-link (post: Audio buttons)
