10.4: Activate Dashboard via a PowerBook's Fn key
Authored by: greengeek on May 15, '05 02:37:03PM

Some interesting things to note about the symbolickeys plist file. You could do this in 10.3 to change the keys for exposť, in fact I believe there was a hint posted about it.

Changing the entries in the file does not add the new keys to the Expose/Dashboard pref pane, but does change which key triggers each action. If you open the pref pane again and change any of the settings, you will lose the manual changes you made.

The other unfortunate thing about the settings in that file, and also the plist for the Keyboard pref pane, is that the only way to trigger the changes is to logout/login. I was looking into a script that could change the modifier key settings for different keyboards on the fly, but it would still require a login/logout to make the changes take effect.
