Keyboard: Redragon Yama k550

Kernel: 5.15.13

Motherboard: MSI Pro Z690-A WIFI (MS-7D25)

Processor: I9 12900k

Natively the keyboard recognizes it to me quite well. The only drawback I have is that the macro keys (G1-G12) are recognized as F1-F12.

Is there a way that this is not the case and you can identify them as separate keys from the F?

I ask this too, because beyond the macro, I am using the Autokey application and I would like to have the macro keys as shortcuts. Is that possible?

Not the optimal solution to the question maybe, but it solves my need to make macros work as shortcuts.

What I did was install the Autokey application

Then, in the hotkey configuration I put a combination such as "shift + F1" and that does the function I need.

Then record a macro on the macro keys with "shift + F1", let's say in the macro G12

So when I press the macro G12, it applies what I have saved in the shortcut "shift + F1"

In this way, I can even have a python script executable with a macro key.
