Hi all,

how do you define the option and apple keys under os x for use in ardour - what text needs to be input into the ardour.rc file?

1) start up a terminal (from Applications/Utilities)
2) cd to /usr/X11R6/bin
3) run ./xev
4) report back here on the info displayed when you press the option and apple keys
