"Super" key on a laptop

Hey all,

Anyone have any idea what key would be the "Super" key on a Thinkpad T41 laptop?

Thanks

Not there.  You'll have to make your own.  This is how I did it on a T43.

Re: "Super" key on a laptop

It is worth knowing that the two solutions listed here solve the problem in very different ways with very different end results. 

The solution I linked will actually make one  of your Alt keys identify itself as the Super / Windows key leaving the other Alt key as a normal Alt key.  The solution Ikraemer linked does not alter the keyboard map, instead it is an explanation of how to change the OpenBox key bindings to use the Alt key instead of the super key.   With the later solution either alt key can be used with the open box key bindings; however, other applications that look for a super key will not respond correctly and any applications that previously used the Alt key binding will be superseded by the new openbox binding. 

Good to have two options, just make sure you know which one you are going with.

@Ikraemer: you can link right to a post instead of having to list the post number by using the post time link.

update: Ikraemer has moved his solution it is now here: http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic … t-or-cntl/
Comparison of the two can be found here: http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic … -a-laptop/
