Re: Switching consoles (was Re: XFree4 on Pismo)


on the subject of using the Fn key to access the fucntion keys, I notied one
day when I first got my pismo that there was an opion in macos (I think I
read it in the little book that came with the pismo) that there is a way to
tell macos to reverse the function keys, so the F1-F12 work by default and
the function key is used to access the special features like screen
brightness and volume and such.

Does anyone know how to change this in linux also (well I suppose I could
remap all the key events, but it sounds messy, and also some things are
intercepted by the kernel before they hit user space it seems, like the
screen brightness thing).

Yes I just found the book and looked in it, it says you can use the keyboard
control panel in macos to reverse the the keys so the styandard function
keys are the primary keys there. So does anyone know if there is some easy
way to do this? or do I have to just remap them all if I want that?
