Re: switching between keymaps in X
'XkbOptions' is what you want.
for example 'XkbOptions "grp:shift_toggle"' -- switches keyboard
layout by pressing both shift-keys
run 'xf86config' for more options.
I need to configure my X 4.1.0-16 in woody on x86 PC to switch between
different keyboard maps. I need standard us/uk keymap and cz_qwerty
keymap. So I change /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 as follows:
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
Option "XkbVariant" "cz_qwerty"
But now I don't know how to switch that 2 keymaps (without restarting
X and replacing XkbLayout). I looked for the solution in archive but
didn't found anything. Old versions of X (3.3.6) use Scroll Lock or
Please, can you tell me how to solve this....
