This application is designed to suit any PC keyboard that has some extra
keys that otherwise make no use with X (e.g. multimedia keys on some
keyboard models).
With xhkeys you can assign a particular action to any key or key combination
(key and shift state) that can be of one of the following types:
- built-in operation (e.g. window circulation)
- calling an external application
- calling a custom module (plugin)
- sending a key event to a specified application
(simulating key press/release)
- sending a mouse button event to a specified application
(simulating button press/release)
- on-screen display
- continuous plugin call (e.g. for monitoring CD Audio position)
The package includes configuration utility.
