Consistant Keyboard Configuration (was Re: Another packages wishlist)
And I have a request too...
At one point there was a group working on making the keyboard configuration
of debian consistant between x and console. Does this group still function
and contribute to debian?
Slink was great for its keyboard configuration... potato is so far
horrible and broken in some ways. Consistancy between console and
X is badly broken, and no one seems to be talking about that.
If anyone knows about this group or is/was working with them, could
you point me to them? Or better yet, if they are inactive, can someone
You can consider this a Request For Discussion to add consistancy wrt
key mapping between x, console, telnet, ssh and as many other things
as possible that would make sense to have consistant mapping, to
the debian policy document.
