Hello everyone,

I've followed the threads on this list about the thinkpad-specific 
forward/backward keys and did google searches but haven't had much luck.

My environment is:  Debian (a mixture of stable and testing), gnome 2.4, 
kernel 2.4.23, mozilla 1.5 from the debian packages on relativ.org.

With this setup, alt-left and alt-right don't work at all.  In fact, 
when I hold down any of the alt keys and press left or right, xev 
doesn't even register an event.  It registers events for alt and for the 
left/right keys themselves without alt, but with alt pressed left/right 
doesn't show any events.  Based on the xev issue I think it's a X server 
config problem but I have no idea where to start on that.  Any pointers 
will be appreciated.
