I think the package is kmilo and it handles special keys in KDE. It
should be installed
as default with KDE desktop.
Kmilo has bugs, 100% CPU, volume only 0 - 11% and others. Supposed to
be fixed in
KDE 3.5.9 but not for me. In kontrol panel and KDE services (i think)
you see if its running
and activate/deactivate it.
