Sorry if this has already been suggested as I don't have the full thread 
but has using the Settings Manager -> Keyboard -> Application Shortcut 
been tried?  My keyboard had a number of dysfunctional keys and I 
programmed them all through the Keyboard program.  Bonus, programmed a 
few extras i.e. ctrl+"home" key for my file browser etc.

If not; once in the Application Shortcut tab as above then click the 
"+Add" to add, type in the proper command as you would from command line 
"i.e. xfce4-display-settings --minimal" and click "OK" you will then be 
prompted to enter the key sequence you want i.e. fn+F7. Once accepted 
then try your key function then.

This has helped me reprogram things like volume control, start pause, etc.

Hope it helps.
