Re: LCIII and colors and modem
I wrote recently about my problems with X colors, my HP printer and my
keyboard under X.
I'll work on the colors and printer after I get the keyboard working.
The Apple standard keyboard works fine (though with a US layout) in the
console mode. When I switch to X, the spacebar becomes n, the number 8 =
return, 2 = r, 3 = t and so on. It is totally unusable. I have figured out
what each of the keys does, but it is quite a hassle typing that way.
In the console mode, I have already begun t change the layout. That is,
my z is a z and my y is a y. I'll work on the rest soon, and post the
German layout when I'm finished.
I have no idea how to fix the layout under X. I was hoping to use one of
the PC maps under XKEYBOARD and modify the layout to "fake" it. That
isn't working out because I don't know how to click right or left with my
standard one-button adb mouse.
Perhaps if someone could tell me how to emulate the two (or even three)
button mouse, then I could work on a mac map and layout.
As you can tell, I'm not a kernel hacker, but I am interested in getting
this box to work. Give me some primitive tools, and I'll turn this LCIII
into a Linux Sistine chapel.
