[Bug 111943] Re: The eject button does not work on Dell Inspiron 510m in KDE

This Keycode (204) is the same for Apple USB keyboards. This bug is
confirmed in Kubuntu Gutsy with all the latest updates.

I have attached a version of khotkeysrc (~/.kde/share/config/khotkeysrc)
that only has this event in it. It's not actually a patch (though I've
marked it as a patch because it fixes the problem).

If you have other input actions (kcontrol -> Regional & Accessibility -> Input Actions), you should add it yourself.
You can do this by going there (you'll need to open kcontrol through the run command) and making a new action of type "Keyboard Shotcut -> Command/URL (simple)", using your Eject key for the shortcut, and 'kdeeject cdrom' as the command.

I would suggest adding khotkeysrc back to kubuntu-default-settings with
this key included. (This bug is really a kubuntu-default-settings bug in
that case).
