Someone please help me; I've grepped through directories, read man pages and
FAQs, and posted an earlier message here, without any success.
When I upgraded my Linux installation to Slackware 1.2, which meant moving
from XFree 2.0 to 2.1, the function keys in all the windows stopped working as
expected. They (or at least some of them) seem to be remapped to mouse
functions -- iconizing windows, changing focus, etc. The keys aren't passed
through to applications, and this is causing me much heartache.
I've tried using different term windows (xterm, rxvt, and shelltool), and
different window managers (olvwm and twm) and see the same result. The
function keys work fine under a Linux virtual terminal. It seems that this
behaviour <must> be the result of some low-level Xserver keymapping, but I
can't figure out where.
Please, someone, what is remapping the function keys, and how do I get them
back to normal operation?
