Another solution can be hotkeys:
http://packages.debian.org/stable/x11/hotkeys

It catches events from special keys on many keyboards and starts
user-defined programs. It also can set the mixer and displays a nice
volume slider as an on-screen-display-bar (OSD). Unfortunatly it
seems, this is hardcoded to use the old OSS-mixer interface so it
won't work with for example the M-Audio Audiophile that I have in my
main machine but I'm using hotkeys on my laptop.

Ciao
