getscancodes is very useful tool for grabbing scancodes. Quick howto for newbie

  • install getscancodes from aur #yaourt -Sya getscancodes
  • connect your device and recognize it #dmesg|tail -30
  • find the event id of the device (use grep) #cat /proc/bus/input/devices
  • run getscancodes #sudo getscancodes /dev/input/event18

I find that it easy just to use setkeycodes for a quick test # setkeycodes scancode keycode

I recommend on mapping the scancodes to a keycode with udev, just link to the wiki or merge the pages. Dhead (talk) 05:54, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
