That seems not to be the case with my R30.

Is xev supposed to be include with xfree86 ? I cannot find xev in my
Mandrake 8.2, and no package as far as I have found has got the
xev-binary, well, I just have to keep looking for it. In the meantime I'll
try your use your keycodes.

My R30 came bundled with Win98SE, and I am not sure if I checked those
keys in IE, but I will, and as soon as I have copied the xev binary from
my Debian-box I'll check those keycodes as well.
