<*>-<Scroll Lock> Functions

Post by Andrew J. Pizia » Sat, 12 Mar 1994 11:44:35



   I recently read the keyboard device driver traps various <*>-<Scroll Lock>
key combinations to control logging of kernel activity.  Where are these key
combinations documented?  Examples are:

        Shift-ScrollLock        Alt-ScrollLock        Ctrl-ScrollLock

   Thank you.

From the kbd.FAQ:
-------
4. Ctrl-Alt-Del and other special key combinations

A. Ctrl-Alt-Del (Boot)
If you press Ctrl-Alt-Del (or whatever key was assigned the keysym Boot by
loadkeys) then either the machine reboots immediately (without sync), or
init is sent a SIGINT. The former behaviour is the default. The default can
be changed by root, using the system call reboot(), see ctrlaltdel(8).
Some init's change the default. What happens when init gets SIGINT depends
on the version of init used - often it will be determined by the pf entry
in /etc/inittab [which means that you can run an arbitrary program in this case].

B. Other combinations

Name            Default binding
-------------------------------
Show_Memory     Shift-Scrollock
Show_Registers  AltGr-ScrollLock
Show_State      Ctrl-ScrollLock
Console_n       Alt-Fn                  (1 <= n <= 12)
Console_{n+12}  AltGr-Fn                (1 <= n <= 12)
Last_Console    Alt[Gr]-PrintScreen
Scroll_Backward Shift-PageUp
Scroll_Forward  Shift-PageDown
Caps_On                                 (CapsLock is a toggle; this key sets)
Compose         Ctrl-.

C. X Combinations

Ctrl-Alt-Fn     Switch to VT n
Ctrl-Alt-KP+    Next mode
Ctrl-Alt-KP-    Previous mode
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace      Kill X
