Hey I got a great wireless keyboard called the Logitech K270, even got it to work on the same USB reciever with my wireless mouse which I love.

I figured I could try to figure out how to get real hotkeys to work on Linux now. They usually work on netbooks and laptops I've installed Linux on, but it would be automatically detected and set up for me.

This keyboard has some multimedia keys at the top that I would love to get working for me, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about a solution to getting these keys to work.

I use Lubuntu, but even if it doesn't use Openbox/LXDE I'm still willing to hear ideas about this. Would also be useful for a lot of people coming to Linux who are interested in this, because I know this is a problem for many people.

Right now all I've really tried was getting a bash script to read my key hits and display it back to me, through a variable, but it would just give me blanks when I hit the hotkeys.
