[Mono-dev] Catch keys outside the Window?

Hey all,

I'm trying to make a keybinding application in C# using Mono. However, I
have no experience whatsoever in programming under Linux (more specifically
I'm under Ubuntu and GNOME). I need to be able to detect keypresses outside
the window of my application. I also want the application to be in the tray
(left of the clock, however thats called in Linux). In Windows I would just
hook the user32.dll but under Linux I am well... Stuck. Is there something
in the Mono library that allows this? Or can I "hook" some Linux binary? I
read a bit and I'd need to use the X server but I'm not even sure if I can
do this with Mono.
