Are you talking about hardware keay on the device ore gestures? If hardware keys, try "xev" to figure out if they actually are mapped to keyboard events. Use "acpi_listen", if the keys are not identifyable with xev. Use "dmesg -w", if the beys are not identifyable with acpi, either. When you identified the keys and managed to map them to keyboard keys, then use "xbindkeys -k" to get a config for xbindkeys - that's independent from your GUI. You'll need to start xbindkeys from your .xinitrc .
