I think that would be great to have those in PBIs or even included them in PC-BSD distro

  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 on
  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

    Here I go:

    1. I'm enjoying acer laptop which needs additional drivers to recognize keys such as: mute, sound-up/down and other special keys. On linux I had a big pack of drivers for my precious but in PC-BSD I'm in need to get the specialkeys working for me. Is there any way to let me adjust volume with my keyboard on this system?

    2. System Settings -> Advanced -> Input Actions doesn't work for me at all. Nor PrintScreen macro, no-thing. I've tried to create own and trink up what's wrong by myself, but I couldn't. Is it only me without input actions working, or there's some system problem?
