EliteBook 8730w - OpenSuse 11.1 - Multimedia keys

To have the volume multimedia keys to work on OpenSuse 11.1 and the elitebook 8730w, you will need to configure the keys with xmodmap:

put in ~/.Xmodpap:

keycode 176=XF86AudioRaiseVolume
keycode 174=XF86AudioLowerVolume
put in .kde4/Autostart/Xmodmap-autoload:
xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap
chmod +x .kde4/Autostart/Xmodmap-autoload
You may need to check the location of your KDE Autostart directory. This can be found in System Setttings>Personal>About me.
