Okay, here's what I did.

I found this link:
It tells you how to use showkey command to find out your keycodes. Then it links to this article:

Basically you create a personal keymap just for the keys you are trying to enable and either use a keysym (the symbol for they key) or a command in quotes using the "string" command with a new-line \n to get the command executed. I did this using amixer commands, just for pcm control and it works. This was just a quick fix-up which I'll work on more later and this is a quick summary so read the information at the listed links if you are interested


May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable to You, Lord,
my rock and my Redeemer.
(Psalm 19:14 HCSB)
