    I have a Viewsonic Slim Keyboard KU201 and have all these extra buttons on the top of the keyboard (volume, home key, power, find, back/forward browser, etc.).

    The volume keys and power button work, but none of the others. Any ideas on what I could use to get that going? I'd really like to have my iTunes work with the forward back buttons.

    System Preference > Keyboard & Mouse > Keyboard Shortcuts

    Play around in there and see if that solves your problem.

    Not particularly helpful advice. But thanks anyway.

    Do you not see how you can add new shortcuts in there? Can you not just select your application and tell it what key? I've never used it before but helped a friend out the other day with that same advice. I don't know what isn't useful about that.

    Have you also tried going to the manufacturers website to see if they have any drivers you can install for mac?

    I just haven't figured out how the volume keys work and the others don't. I suppose it has to do with the mapping of the keys that are on the iBook as well. Oh well, I was just looking for a quick suggestion to a bit of software to help me out as Viewsonic doesn't offer any solutions.
