Projects / Hotkeys


The HotKeys daemon listens for the "special" hotkeys that you won't normally use on your Internet/Multimedia keyboards. The buttons perform their intended behaviors, such as volume up and down, mute the speaker, or launch applications. It features an XML-based keycode configuration file format, which makes it possible to define the hotkeys to launch any programs you want.
