Thanks for writing tpb. It works great on my T43, with one minor problem. I set up the THINKPAD button to launch a gnome-terminal, but it opens with the shell's working directory set to /. How about changing it so child processes are run in the user's home directory?


P.S. I'm running 0.6.3 from debian stable.
