Talk:Keyboard configuration in Xorg
Making Shift+numkeys work like on Windows
I needed Shift+NumHome (numkey 7) to work like Shift+Home and select the text... but with NumLock off it would just type out '7' The solution was either turn on numlock temporarily then Shift+Num7 or make it work like in Windows where Shift key doesn't act like a temporary numlock toggler:
setxkbmap -option "numpad:microsoft"
Wanted to add the following under "Using X configuration files"Due to a bug of gdm 3.14+ on systemd systems described here, gdm does not read the 10-keyboard.conf before it starts up.
I tried using xorg.conf.d files for keyboard and it did not work. I found the linked solution / bug description. I wanted to share that with the community by adding a warning. Not it was removed. Why?
- 1. It would be better to link to an upstream report 2. localectl creates those same *.conf files in
/etc/vconsole.conffor TTY use), so the cause it not clear from the warning alone. -- Alad (talk) 12:26, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
- 2. I don't have an explanation either. But the bug is also described here for Arch. --Denoyse (talk) 12:44, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
Configuring compose keys
This section suggests to copy a default combination file to
.XCompose. Wouldn't it be cleaner to use an instruction like
include "%L" or
include "/path/to/specific/locale/compose"? --Lysxia (talk) 17:35, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
