I installed zkbdd It works great for the leters and numbers but I have no puncuation. Replacing the lines for shift on the numbers with 0; s made some symbold work. It seems to pass shift to the X as well as shift them itself. The shifted numbers are maped like on the Z and not my IR kbd. and except for [{}] none of the puncuation dose what it should some make internatonal chars and most make unsuported chars the "~" makes a a with two dots above it. I guessed that the scan codes are difrent for difrent models of Z, some searching here reveled xev as a way to see the scancdes now things got wirerd it shows standard scancodes like on a PC, ztokens shows somthing completly diffrent. blink.gif More searching shows that X translates the codes before any apps sees them.

So somthing like
Z keyscan --> translate to pc keyscan --> X ---> aplacation

zkbdd taps in at the Z keyscan and makes my IRK act like a 2nd set of Z keys

2 questions
Can I use the pc scancodes and have zkbdd put it in the streem stright to X?
Is there somthing that will let me see the Z scancodes outside of X so I can map them for my 3200 or a place ther documented?

I also get the same strangness with usb keybords useble but flakey on some keys.

Thanks

Well this is like losing the mayo in the fridge you cand see it no mater how hard you look untel you ask someone else then ... POOF there it is in front of you. laugh.gif

To find out use
CODE
keydump > SomeTextFile.txt


To get keydump install console tools

Now to ansewre my own question yes the maps are diffrent on mine anything you have to [Fn]+ some other key to get isnt maped. Most of the puncuation. This may be a side effect of me frankenstining together the spitz and akita pdaXii versions so I can run what I use most off the flash to squese every drop out of the battery life by suspending the hdd, or ther may be a difrence between the pdaX and pdaXii keymaps.

Then I saw somthing I hadn't ever tryed before X-->System Tools-->USB Keybord Setings there it was a way to load up diffrent keymaps, USB kbd now working great. It shouldnt be very hard to add a "Zaurs + IRK" version thet uses the map zkbdd was desinged for.

One more question in USB Keybord Setings whre dose it keep the files it loads so I can add a new one?

Thanks
