I'm trying to use this keymap on gutsy and etch. I gather both of
them have converted to the console-tools package, which somehow uses
the X keymaps on the console.
I'm trying to figure out how to add my keymap additions to those
keymaps and so far I'm lost in a sea of documentation :-)
So, assuming I'm using a standard pc 104 us qwerty keyboard, how do
I add these entries to an X style keymap?
And no, the tn5250 project list doesn't know - they've mostly moved
on from using the console to X....
I don't know tn5250, but at least x3270 does its own keymapping. IIRC
c3270 used the same mappings. So try doing the mapping at the
I recall that the x3270 man page had a comprehensive and yet difficult
to understand description of that mapping.
x5250 and xt5250 both work fine... in X :-(
Unfortunately they don't work on a console (sidebar - 'in' a console?)
It seems like the current maintainers are focused on the X versions
and aren't familiar with the linux console, so there's not much help
