Hmm. That it only works on display :0 seems like a bug. A way to work around
it would be with xmodmap. If you run xev, it will show you all of the X
events that it sees, including keypresses. That'll give you which keysyms or
keycodes to switch when using xmodmap.
Put these into a file .Xmodmap:
keycode 116 = Meta_L
keycode 64 = Alt_L
Then run xmodmap .Xmodmap and see if that helps in X. Those keycodes are
correct here, but I already have Alt and Meta properly done on my original
iBook. Use xev to get the keycodes of your keys.
BTW, what kind of keyboard is it? (US, French, etc...)
> Also, couldn't yet get the console right :(...
Yeah, console keyboards and X keyboards are different beasts.
1. Select keymap from arch list
32. US american
1. Apple USB
Then you'll see that 'mac-usb-us' is installed. Do you have something else?
