I have a similar problem, both in Fedora 9 and Fedora 10. I used to use xmodmap successfully. Now, some of my keys have entirely different keycodes with xev than they did before and some don't generate any keycodes at all. I use a Logitech USB keyboard. Some of the keys do generate keycodes and have X mappings, but it is impossible to use them in Khotkeys/Input Actions anyway. I have not complained because I am so thrilled that KDE4 is so great and this is a low priority problem, but as KDE gets better, this is moving up the list of things that would be nice to have fixed (actually, festival text-to-speech is a much higher priority for me, hint hint).

My guess is that this problem stems from the new X Server and possibly the use of evdev as the keyboard driver. Once again, I am so thrilled that I am actually using evdev successfully, that this seems minor to me and I would be more ecstatic to have the Intel display driver fixed that will permit OpenGL effects and modesetting. Patience, my boy. It is coming.
