So I have purchased a Stinky Footboard and wish to remap the keys so that when I press forward, back etc it will instead press the wasd keys or whatever I might want to set it to. I had a stroke so I'm unable to use a mouse and keyboard at the same time.

If I use showkey to see the keymapping, with the footboard in vertical mode:

keycode  17 press - Forward
keycode  17 release
keycode  31 press - Backward
keycode  31 release
keycode  30 press - Left
keycode  30 release
keycode  32 press - Right
keycode  32 press

I've already tried a solution using xmodmap but learned that xkb is the solution these days. However, they assume you have two working hands so this is a special case.
