A few weeks ago I found a way to assign the Thinkvantage key from my Thinkpad R60 to open a terminal under Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10). Because most documentation is outdated, I will place and share a little tutorial with you. I will go to all the steps, even those who might be useless for some, just to make sure that everything is correct.
About Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope): I don’t know if this works in 9.04, but I’m planning a clean install real soon (I talking about 2 – 3 days). You always can subscribe to my RSS-feed to get notification.
