Hi,

I want to write my own on-screen keyboard layout, but I don't understand completely the format of the files under /home/zaurus/Applications/cyrillica. Is there a document explaining its format?

There is a section [screen] that has the characters show in each row of the keyboard without and with the shift key pressed. That's ok.

I don't understand the next to sections: [keyboard] and [keyboard-fn]. Can someone explain its use?

Other questions: Can I use 'Ctrl' and 'Alt' modifiers to generate especial characters (I was thinking on usign Alt-a to á, etc)? how?

Thanks for all

Please report your progress. Also you can send your files when you finish them to Anton Maslovsky. He may include your new layout into the Cacko.

Thanks for the link.
I have been searching in the forums, but I didn't found that thread.

Now I understand all the section and I have created a layout with the correct Fn+key combinations for the spanish characters.

But I want to do the same for the on-screen keyboard. How can control the alt+key and ctrl+key combinations?

Thanks.

I didn't have that need and have no idea how to assign Ctr and Alt combinations to onscreen keys. Would be interesting to know though.
