for whoever has problem inputting "/" in X/Qt

use apt-get install xvkbd
it will have a virtual keyboard
so you can input "/" from X

alternatively edit .xmodmaprc by looking at keycodes using xev

dont forget to run khctl stop before starting debian/xqt

ahhh... sad.gif

"apt-get" is only useful if you have the networked debian package

alternatively, you can just download the "xvkbd" from debian ARM package and install them by using ipkg
but most likely, you will be having a lot dependency problem (that's why apt-get is useful)

is there any way you can get hotspot in your area or use the USB cable connected to your PC/Mac/whatever, setup the internet for your Z, and get the internet that way?

on 6000 x/qt debian with .xmodmaprc provided by smuelas smuelas key mapping backslash "/" is mapped to Shift+space. I guess it's not a problem for the 6000 user. However I am desperate to find a solution to input pipe "|". Thanks for the xvkbd tip.

With that said, I'd still prefer this fixed in .xmodmaprc. Do you know how to fix this for 6k? Is the pipe "|" key called "bar" in the .xmodmaprc?

Edit: Nevermind, I found the 6000 Keymap and learned how to use xev. I managed to map the "bar" into one of the unused keycodes (i.e. what's left from smuelas .xmodmaprc): biggrin.gif

keycode
132 Fn+email

some other options: currently mapped to
86 Fn+righ end
87 Fn+up prior
88 Fn+down next
125 Fn+space will bring up the unicode
