    Keyboard
    Hi, I bought a new external keyboard and I wanted to know how I could set the keys on the keyboard to change the volume on my mac and set another as an eject button. Thanks.

    Sorry, Mac OSX 10.6, and my brand new Das Keyboard, I just want to assign some keys to do other things like change the system volume and eject discs.

    Or tried any of the Utilities linked to by the Daskeyboard site?

    Talking DasKeyboard DoubleCommand and Keyboard Customization
    I recently purchased a DasKeyboard to replace a tired Apple keyboard. The keyboard itself is pretty awesome. Has the right kind of feel and I find that my typing is more accurate and faster.

    My issue has been with remapping the keys so they work seamlessly with my Mac. I've been using DoubleCommand and find that it does a poor job and requires multiple boots - has anyone else had this issue?

    On the DasKeyboard site they recommend FunctionFlip (which is great if you use function keys), DoubleCommand and ControllerMate (which I haven't tried).

    Does anyone have experience with setting up a non-Apple keyboard? I've spent some time searching but haven't found an answer I'm happy with.

    Thanks for reading and thanks in advance.
