One of the devices should have worked for you.
In my case its ACPI device. Select it, press ok, and then press one of the keyboard extra keys.

Provide an unique name for Manufacture and Model.

Start adding keys, and provide a clear name to the key. Select the newly created key, and see if there is a keycode for that key.
Avoid setting the program functions, that will be done latter, with the keytouchd.
When you are finish and press File->Save, you will have a chance to send it to the author.

Now open keytouch, if you are not asked to import the newly created keyboard, go to Keyboard->change and do it there.
In the KeySettings start attributing programs/actions to your keys.
After a reboot, to make the keytouch daemon load the new settings, the keys should work.

Some of this apps require gksu, so you are better launching them via the menus, and not via terminal or alt+F2.

Humm it the applet doesnt work, either you have a more serious bug, or you are being affected by one of the bugs that make gnome-power-manager crash.

Wish you luck.
