Map a Function Key
You can use these steps as a guideline for mapping any key that is listed in the Explicitly mapped keys on the Map Key tab in the Keyboard Maps dialog box.
Suppose that your X client requires a function key (such as F23) that you don't have on your keyboard. You can map one of your function keys (such as F10) to send the F23 X .
To map the unshifted F10 to send the F23 X Keysym
- In X Manager or X Manager for Domains, click Tools > Keyboard Maps.
- For Select Keyboard Map, select an editable keyboard map.
Note: The default keyboard maps are not editable. Click Clone to create a new custom keyboard map based on an existing keyboard map.
- Use the Map Key tab (displayed by default).
- In the list of Explicitly mapped keys on the left side of the tab, select the F10 key. (As an alternative, you can click the + sign in Explicitly mapped keys to open the Add or Find Key dialog box. With your cursor in the Press a key field, press F10, then click OK.)
- With the F10 key selected, click the first Change Mapped X Keysym button (next to the Unshifted key description).
- In the Change Mapped X Keysym dialog box, use the following steps to select F23. (Since this is not a physical key on your keyboard, you must select it from the list.)
- Set Filter X Keysym list by category to Function Keys.
- In Select X Keysym from list, select F23.
- Click OK.
- The Map Keys tab now shows that the F10 key is mapped to the F23 X Keysym.
Note: Administrators can also configure Keyboard Maps from the Domain Definitions tab
