function key problem

Greetings all,

I have some problem with the function keys for a laptop: some
functions of the "Fn+SOMEKEY" are sometimes sofware-based, there are
drivers for them in Windows, but no for linux. I am wondering if there
a way to catch the key press event and then execute a program which is
determined by the event? Thanks a lot!
