  1. I’m still a bit fuzzy as to what this actually does…so I’m just going to ask you if it will allow me to use multimedia keys in a minimalistic desktop such as openbox. I realize xmodmap and the like are fine for that…but I’d rather have something like this automatically done depending on who is installing my distribution. Can this do this for me?
