DESCRIPTIONThis filter translates key events according to a set of translation rules. This can be used to remap a keyboard.
The name of the configuration file. If none given, the filter will
first look for the file filter/keytrans in the user GGI
directory ($HOME/.ggi/ on UNIX), then in the base GGI directory
if not found.
CONFIGURATIONThe mapping is specified through a simple text file, each line being a translation rule. A line starting with a # is a comment. Each line must contain 10 values in the following order:
Consider only the bits set here.
The bits set above must match this value.
- button_in, label_in, symbol_in
If this is not KEY_UNMAPPED==0xffff, the button/label/symbol
of the incoming key must match these fields.
Change these bits from the original modifiers...
... set them to these - one shouldn't use that.
- button_out, label_out, symbol_out
The data that is then sent by the keymapper. Any fields set
to KEY_UNMAPPED==0xffff will be copied from the
EXAMPLEMapping a symbol:
# Take any key that produces a symbol of 0x41 ('A') map it to ESC # # modmsk modval buttin lablin symin modchg modor butout labout symout 0x0000 0x0000 0xffff 0xffff 0x0041 0x0000 0x0000 0xffff 0xffff 0x001b
