XPhoton and localized keyboards

Post by Guest » Mon Dec 16, 2002 10:56 am

Is there anything new regarding the keyboard problem
of the XPhoton?

There was a "We are working on it"-Statement from
QSSL two years ago ... (MessageID: <8uuugm$av7$1@nntp.qnx.com>)

There were some discussions on the openqnx mailing list.

What problem are you having?
What does your keymap file look like?
(I'll assume you start "XPhoton -keymap somefile")

Now that we've opened the source, we're no longer working on it,
but I believe your problem was addressed.

Most keys ar allright, but the shifted numbers ('!','"','%', etc)
and all diacritical characters are wrong!

I only start /usr/bin/ph ... what would be a good idea of 'somefile'?

I've attached the sample.keys file from the source archive. It just
needs a unique byte for each physical key mapped from Photon key_caps.
(can be whatever value you like, but you may need to xmodmap the diffs)

If you're feeling energetic :) and you don't care about keyboard input
from phditto/phindows, you could change the source to actually use the
scan code from the input events. phditto/phindows input events don't
have scan codes and X servers only pass a single byte of 'detail' around
internally for keyboard events...
