Re: [Fwd: Windows Key Mapping]
I used to use the Windows key as one key but with the recent upgrade,
If I recall correctly, both of these keys were mapped to Mod_4. Now in
GNOME 2.8, it is mapped to a Super_L and Super_R.
Can anyone help me on how I can get my old keys back?
I have this in ~/.Xmodmap
!! WIN9x & menu keys
keycode 115 = Super_L
keycode 116 = Super_R
keycode 117 = Multi_key
add mod4 = Super_L Super_R
From a command prompt:
$ xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap
I have a no idea how gnome 2.8 handles mod4 so I am unsure what you
do next to specify actions w/ mod4+key. I expect they have some gui config
app where you can specify keyboard shorctuts (?)
Once you get this to work you probably want to add the "xmodmap" command
to some X initialization file like .xinitrc or Xsession.
In case you wonder.. keycode 117 is the menu key. I use it as a
(Multi_key). Lets you type currency (and other) symbols or accented
your native keyboard doesn't have.
