KeyTouch is a program which allows you to easily configure the extra function keys of your keyboard. This means that you can define, for every individual function key, what to do if it is pressed.
When you buy a new keyboard a CD-ROM will probably included. This CD-ROM contains software to configure the extra function keys (the image above shows an example of extra function keys) of your keyboard with. The problem however is that most of the times the software is not available for Linux.
KeyTouch is the solution to this problem. It allows you to easily configure the extra funtion keys of your keyboard.

What's New in This Release:
· 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.
