Reprogramming a New Right Arrow Key In Linux

Post#1 by jimwg » 01 Mar 2015, 13:20

Greetings!

I wish to resurrect a old R60e ThinkPad. It is in good condition and runs XP well, save for a dead right arrow key. In XP I found an app to reassign the move right page key to perform as a right arrow key and it works well in XP, but I can't find a similar program for Linux. Any suggestions much appreciated.

Thanks!

Thanks for the tip. really, but is there any easier way or app for a non-techie to use just to reassign a key? Open to any hints, thanks!

Not that I know of, but try http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/

Maybe some folks would give you the needed code lines when you ask nicely. :)
Sorry, but I am too busy to look into that jazz for you ATM... :oops:
