From doing a search there seems to be a bunch of people trying to figure out how to remap keys on USB keyboards under pdaXrom.
I have a sexy little Adesso USB keyboard and would like to get better use out of it:
Most keys work OK, but a few do not work at all, or aren't correct. The period on the USB keyboard works when I'm not in X... but in X it starts up XMMS.
I'm guessing that if someone wants to customize the key bindings for a USB keyboard we will have create a separate kernel.map file and swap it out when we want to use the USB keybaord. Please correct me if my train of thought is not correct.
If my train of thought isn't derailed then:
#1. What method do you use to find the keycode that matches the key you are pressing on the USB keyboard.
#2. Can the keybindings be updated in X without having to restart X. " /usr/bin/loadkeys /etc/sysconfig/keyboard/kernel.map" does not seem to work.
Thanks in advance for any help.
