Getting there

The compiled keymap is equivalent to the output of an "xmodmap -pk" command on the UNIX host.

The table shows each keycode in the keymap, the associated key, and the X Keysyms corresponding to the unshifted, shifted, unshifted AltGr, and shifted AltGr positions.

  • Keys that are explicitly mapped (for example, those with keycodes 8-103 in the default keymap) have an entry in the Key column.

    You can override this mapping: Select the key in the Map Key tab, then click Change Mapped X Keysym.

  • Keys that are implicitly mapped (keys which generate characters already supported in the keymap) do not have an entry in the Key column.

    If the key on your keyboard is producing the X Keysym required by the X Client, then no additional mapping is required. To confirm this, click Find Key to verify that the key you press and its result is already included in the supported characters list of this keymap.
