I can't speak for other learning remote, but I've never had any
trouble teaching the MX-500 keystrokes *unless it needs a
modifier*. Then I've never had it work right, but then I haven't tried
eight or nine times per key.

Yes, I've used KHotKeys. Note that it still needs keycodes generated
for keys that don't already have them assigned. I prefer to use
LinEAK because of a) the xosd plugin and b) the fact that it works
regardless of whether KDE is running or not.

Although I haven't tried it xhkeys might be preferable, if only
because it leverages the preexisting X11-based keystrings instead of
using its own unique keystrings the way LinEAK does.
