keyboard setup?

Post by Ady » Thu, 04 Jun 1998 04:00:00

Hi all,

I've recently purchased a Tadpole sparcbook (3000XT) using Solaris 2.6 and
everything is great - so far.

However there seems to be an error with the keyboard setup;  The first is
the pipe command (|).  The key to the left of the 'z' key in conjunction
with the shift key is supposed to produce the pipe |

However, it only works when I use 'Alt Gr' in conjunction with the key on
the left of the '1' key.  This is very annoying.

Anyone know what I need to do here?  BTW, I selected all the british & UK
keymaps during the initial setup, and I'm in the CSH.

Thanks for any ideas,



PS:  The Backspace key appears to be working incorrectly too, especially
when using TCSH....!

Thanks for the ideas.

I've installed XKEYCAPS (a graphical front-end to xmodmap) and re-configured
the two keys that were causing me the hassle.

I'd recommend this software to anyone having problems with keyboard setups -
it's saved me a lot of hassle.
