Xmodmap to rescue of powerbook belgian
xmodmap to the rescue of PowerBook Belgian keyboard¶
cwm(1) release three got imported in the OpenBSD tree
I thought I'd give it a try someday -- That day has arrived.
-current main terminal to hack is a PowerBook6,8 with a Belgian keyboard. Since I've been using X on this laptop with that keyboard I
had to bring
xmodmap(1) into the dance. After a few hours of fiddling with all those modifier keys, I finally came up with
~/.Xmodmap file that would suit my need in ways that the keyboard shortcuts would work as expected with
cwm(1) and other applications.
Nothing fancy, but maybe this could help other wandering souls:
