I'm trying to link a button (now without function) to a bash script that I have made on UBUNTU. I'm using a clevo W150HNM/Sager NP5160

I want to use 1 or 4 for this(see photo on http://i.stack.imgur.com/LUeYO.jpg) I don't get any output of xev, getscancodes or cat /dev/input/eventX when pressing this key.

How can I use this key to run the script?

Many thanks Simon

If xev doesn't give any output, it might mean that it's interpreted specially in hardware and must be read by something other than keyboard tools. –  Scott Severance Apr 20 '11 at 13:00

If the button works in Keyboard Shortcuts, then you can assign the button to your shortcut.

(Keyboard Shortcuts is in System->Preferences).
