Just open a terminal and run

Code: Select all

xev


which will start and event monitor and all the key press events will show up in the terminal. Play with it for a while and you'll start to see where the information is. Then cut and paste the info pertaining to your super key and to your Fn+F8 combo and we will see if there happens to be a similarity.


Unfortunately I couldn't figure out which part of the output is what is needed. It is not all too long, so I am posting all I have here:
