Keycodes are ok --- Ctrl+Alt+Fx don't have symbols, but I'd say they
are not supposed to have some.
I just found out the hard way that the screen turns black and the comp
seems to be frozen when I start the gnome-panel and select
Desktop-->Preferences-->Keyboard. Only thing I can do then is pressing
the Reset button to reboot :(
I'm not actually using gnome, except a few apps and the panel
sometimes, with Enlightenment as WM. What's going on with these
xmodmap: up to 3 keys per modifier, (keycodes in parentheses):
shift Shift_L (0x32), Shift_R (0x3e)
lock Caps_Lock (0x25)
control Control_L (0x42), Control_R (0x6d)
mod1 Alt_L (0x40), Alt_L (0x7d)
mod2 Num_Lock (0x4d)
mod3 Mode_switch (0x5d), Mode_switch (0x71)
mod5 Scroll_Lock (0x4e)
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc101"
Option "XkbLayout" "de"
Option "XkbOptions" "nodeadkeys"
Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
How many buttons does my keyboard have? I'm using one of the heavy,
old and indestructible IBM keyboards (German version) --- the only
decent keyboards you can get. I never counted it's keys, though.
What are valid XkbdModel options? I couldn't find anything in man
xorg.conf and nothing useful with google.
