Hey,

When I used xfce4, keyboard hotkeys for volume and brightness worked out of the box.

Can I get this in fvwm? Maybe by starting some xfce4 daemon?

Thanks!
Nathan

You can run volume-daemons and brightness-daemons if you want, but I believe the common way of doing it in FVWM is to bind keys to console commands.
You could stick something like this in you config files:
Code:
Key XF86AudioLowerVolume  A  A  Exec amixer set PCM 5%-
Key XF86AudioRaiseVolume  A  A  Exec amixer set PCM 5%+


I don't use FVWM or alsa any longer, so I may be off on the syntax. Check your man pages. You can find the names of the keys using xev.
