ive been searching around google to find a tutorial or a sample implementation on how to do keyboard hooking in linux, i plan to catch the event when the user presses ctrl+alt+f1 (linux console switching) in our application.

XGrabKey might be a start but I think it wont work since you can only grab keys that are not already grabbed by an ancestor window and I think that F1 will be grabbed by the root window. However this is just a quess.

While we're on the topic, are there any input libraries that could provide direct input like capabilities on linux? (i'm currently using SDL, but i'm open to alternatives)

ClanLib's input system is very similar to DInput.
