The following are found in the ports tree:

LinEAK is a utility designed to enable the use and configuration
of those special keys on Internet, Easy Access and Multimedia
keyboards in Linux (and other unices, like now FreeBSD).

WWW: http://lineak.sourceforge.net


Kmilo is a utiltiy that enables special keys on a number of custom keyboards
devices such as IBM ThinkPad notebooks.


This program sits at the back and 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, launch applications, etc.

NOTE: CDROM & APM features have been disabled
