Bind Keyboard Calculator key to launch Galculator [SOLVED]

if I want to bind to .xbindkeysrc my calculator Keyboard key to open galculator

I know the basic ones MOD4 etc  but how to find the code of the calculator key on my Logitech keybaord,  to create entry in .xbindkeysrc

On other distros, the more for noobies one, when you create a shortcut, you enter your command and you press the desired key.. SO I have been used to be lazy a bit...

tks !

"man xbindkeys" says:

-k, --key
              Identify one key pressed (useful to fill the configuration file)
-mk, --multikey
              Identify multi key pressed (useful to fill the configuration file)
