    I was trying to bind my fn+f1-f12 keys (which I'm trying to use for volume controls and such) in sxhkd. Before when I used Linux, I bound XF86Audio* keys (e.g. XF86AudioLowerVolume) and it worked, and xev detected them. Now I switched to FreeBSD, xev does not detect any fn+f1-f12 keys at all...
