keyTouch makes it possible to easily configure the extra function keys of a keyboard (like multimedia keys). It allows the user to define which program will be executed when a key is pressed.

Release Notes: keytouchd now detects if KDE or GNOME is running. It does so by checking if there is a process "kdesktop" or "gnome-session". If there is such a process, keytouchd will use the values of all environment variables for its own environment variables. As a result, the applications launched by keytouchd will appear on the XGL display if XGL is running and GTK applications will use the theme as set by KDE when running KDE.
Release Notes: Syntax version 1.2 is now used for keyboard files. keytouch-config now checks if KDE is running by checking the KDE_FULL_SESSION environment variable. keytouch-init now has support for USB keyboards. In keytouch-keyboard the keyboard list is now presented as a tree view. When started, the current keyboard is selected. When a keyboard file is successfully imported, it will also be selected.
Release Notes: Support for USB keyboards in combination with Linux kernel 2.6.24 and later.
Release Notes: Compiler warnings in keytouch-config and keytouch-keyboard have been fixed. In keytouch-acpid, read_event() now only cuts off a line when the line starts with "hotkey" or "button".
Release Notes: Compiler warning fixes, including bug 1731647 (create_get_scancode_dialog implicitly converted to pointer).
