You need to set up your keyboard configuration (sorry, I don't know
how exactly).  Using "C-h l", you will see that Emacs doesn't get any
useful key codes when you press the problematic keys.

You mean, it doesn't work in Emacs?  If so, you will have to set up
xt-mouse.el, I think.  Basically, Emacs doesn't support the mouse on a
