Re: Debian-m68k keyboard layout


should've gone to the list, evidently.




the old version might predate the keyboard driver rewrite to the input device API. IIRC I opted for having the keyboard driver emit PC type keycodes at that time, so old keymaps may no longer work.

I've never bothered to create a german style keymap for the new API, feeling equally at home with US keyboard layout. Time to play with current console tools, finally.

You will need to specify the keyboard type. I forgot where this is done,
but it's not specific to Linux/m68k.

If Atari keyboard layouts are not provided, you will have to create a
new layout and maybe sent it to the maintainer to the console
package to have it added.

IIRC, there's no need to create a new layout. It should exist in an old
version of the/another/a non-debianized package.
