mk_modmap - translate a Linux keytable file into an xmodmap file
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
-v ] keymap_file
3. DESCRIPTION ▲
mk_modmap command tries to translate a Linux console keytable file into a file that can be parsed by xmodmap, and used within X. It outputs the results to standard out.
-v flag is used, verbose output is given.
It requires the X header files to be installed. (In Debian, these are in the "xlibs-dev" package).
4. NOTES ▲
Since XFree version 2.1, X initialises its keymap using the Linux keymap, so xmodmap will often be superflous.
