German type5 keyboard support with X
since I switched from SuSE to Debian on my Ultra10, I can't get my keyboard
fully functional with XFree. My keyboard is a german type6, but I configured
it as a type5, as someone said the differences are almost non-existant. My
Problem is that the 'less-greater-pipe'-Key (left of 'y') only works on
console. The EUR-Key (AltGr+E) works neither with X nor console, but that's
not important for me.
I've googled at little bit and found some postings about some broken
UK-Keyboard maps, but the solution seems not applicable to me because I don't
find an section about "type6" in my /etc/X11/xkb/keycodes/sun. However, when
I choose type6 for keyboard, all keys are offset by one key. So the
type5-keyboard works better for me.
Relevant parts of my XF86Config:
Option "XkbRules" "sun"
Option "XkbModel" "type5"
Option "XkbLayout" "de"
Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
When I run 'dumpkeys' there is one line which may represent the key I miss:
keycode 124 = less greater bar
But in '/etc/X11/xkb/keycodes/sun' there is no corresponding mapping.
I'm quite stuck with this problem because I don't know how to put that
together. Can someone give me a hint howto get the keycode from one
particular keypress and how to map that permanently? Or has s.o. another idea
why the 'less-greater-pipe'-key doesn't work?
