Keyboard mapping for Kensington presenter Other Hardware
I do presentations, and I purchased a Kensington Presenter to assist with them. This worked great with Keynote, but I also wanted to use it for iPhoto, without success. The device sends only a page-up & page-down and iPhoto wants left & right arrows.

I found a utility called KeyReMap4MacBook. It took a few messages back and forth with the author and now it works this way: the page-up is seen as a left arrow and a page-down is seen as a right arrow and only in iPhoto. The response of the author was quick and good. The changes were included in this build, and I'm not sure if they have been merged into the general release. I think that the Apple remote may function the same way, but haven't tried it.

Another feature of KeyReMap4MacBook is that it can display key codes for a key press. There are versions for 10.6 and 10.5/10.4.

[crarko adds: I haven't tested this one. There is a warning from the software developer to uninstall other key mapping programs before installing this one.]

Keyboard mapping for Kensington presenter

This is a good program. I've been using it for some time to make fn be control and eject be forward delete on my MacBook Pro. I did have a kernel panic once because I neglected to restart right away after an autoupdate, but other than that, it's been pretty stable in the latest releases.
