- Name: xbindkeys
- Homepage: https://www.nongnu.org/xbindkeys/xbindkeys.html
- Xbindkeys is a program that allows to bind commands to certain keys or key combinations on the keyboard. Xbindkeys works with multimedia keys and is independent of the window manager and desktop environment. This seems to be the only way to assign special manufacturer keys under linux. For example Asus ROG laptops have special "Steam" and "Macro" keys that cannot be assigned without this tool. Many other laptops have multimedia keys that can be reassigned with this tool.
- Is it Open Source (yes/no) Yes
- Who and how many users do you anticipate will use this software? All users who use laptops with special hardware gaming or multimedia keys.
This package was marked DOA, however it provides unique functionality and meets the 2-distro waiver, with all 3 distros packaging in core repositories. I would be willing to package if accepted.
