So I have been happily using my IBM Model F AT Keyboard after restoring it I did make a restoration log post on DESKTHORITY go check it out if want. Anyway I wanted to know if it would be possible to have ctrl plus all the keys below for different media keys.

1 I want to be volume mute

2 I want to be volume down

3 I want to be volume up

4 I want to be play/pause

5 I want to be rewind

6 I want to be fast forward

Just to clarify the number keys im talking about are not the ones on the num pad.

Please any support would be great in determining if this would be possible Thanks.

I didn't get my Model F "out of storage" to test it, but this should be the necessary commands for the programing of the keys 1 - 4. I couldn't find any key codes for fast forward or rewind, though. (All I see are "previous track" and "next track".)

Code: Select all

macroblock

  macro 1 CTRL -SHIFT -ALT -GUI
    PUSH_META CLEAR_META all
    DELAY 5
    PRESS MEDIA_MUTE
    POP_ALL_META
  endmacro

  macro 2 CTRL -SHIFT -ALT -GUI
    PUSH_META CLEAR_META all
    DELAY 5
    MAKE MEDIA_VOLUME_DOWN
   onbreak
    BREAK MEDIA_VOLUME_DOWN
    POP_ALL_META
  endmacro

  macro 3 CTRL -SHIFT -ALT -GUI
    PUSH_META CLEAR_META all
    DELAY 5
    MAKE MEDIA_VOLUME_UP
   onbreak
    BREAK MEDIA_VOLUME_UP
    POP_ALL_META
  endmacro

  macro 4 CTRL -SHIFT -ALT -GUI
    PUSH_META CLEAR_META all
    DELAY 5
    PRESS MEDIA_PLAY_PAUSE
    POP_ALL_META
  endmacro

endblock

So I've tested it with my Model F XT now and it works fine.
I don't think it matters if it's an AT or XT in this case.

In your post you left out the first line "macroblock". But that can't be the reason, because then the error message would complain about line 1 or 2 and not 20.
But is there really not other code apart from mine in your config file? If there is, please post the complete file content.

For the F-keys you mentioned, include this between "macroblock" and "endblock":

Code: Select all

  macro F9 CTRL
    PUSH_META CLEAR_META CTRL
    PRESS F11
    POP_ALL_META
  endmacro

  macro F10 CTRL
    PUSH_META CLEAR_META CTRL
    PRESS F12
    POP_ALL_META
  endmacro

Thanks again for the input unfortunately I won't be able to get you the complete code until 2 weeks to e as I am on holiday but will post the code basically my code has all sorts of other remapping to allow my AT to have a standard UK ISO Layout and also remapping caps lock scroll lock, NUM lock and print screen.

Will send you full code when I am back though.
