keyboard extra keys problem


Description pikov 2004-04-05 08:49:20 CEST
look at bug #0000147. " Nothing changed in this matter. As if xev doesn't
return the keysym, then you're missign a couple of xmodmap definitions."

But xev doesn't show keysyms _ONLY_ when xfwm4-4.0.4 is running. When I shut
it down, or launch everything (xev, and keys) is fine. So it _is_ a
problem with xfwm. I have Logitech Internet ("XkbModel" "logiik") keyboard.

How do those keys get defineD? Do you you have an xmodmap somewhere? If not, I
don't see how such special keys can be known.

And you you have xmodmap definitions, where are they defined? What if you run
it from an terminal?

oh, and it's really not a "blocking" problem, come on!
Comment 3 pikov 2004-04-05 11:26:59 CEST
I don't have xmodmap in my home dir. But special keys are eg. here...?
/usr/share/xmodmap/xmodmap.pl for common polish keyboard without special keys.
And... for special keys:
xkb_symbols "logiik" {
name[Group1]= "Logitech Internet Keyboard";
key <I6C> { [ XF86Mail ] };
key <I32> { [ XF86WWW ] };
key <I65> { [ XF86Search ] };
Together with
Options "XkbModel" "logiik"
in XF86Config it works.

They all work fine when xfwm4-4.0.4 is not running, xev detects them, just
fine. But I've just tried...
and seems to be fine. I'll check again precisely later, and let you know.
Sorry for this "blocking" (;

Definitely OK. I don't know what you did - guess you do not either (:, but in
this mentioned cvs everything is just fine. Checked few times ( and cvs)
becouse of your disbelief.

sounds like this is resolved, isn't it?
