[kde-solaris] sol9 & kde 3.0.5 - keyboard ugliness & backspace
Wed Feb 26 01:16:01 2003
I have PC running Microsoft Windows 2000 Pro
On it I'm running WRQ Reflection X 8
Connecting XDMCP direct to Solaris 9 running on a Ultra 10.
When I load CDE window manager, I can make the backspace key on my =
Microsoft Natural Pro (ergo) keyboard work by any of the following =
1. stty erase ^H
2. stty sane
3. switch from korn to bash
When I load KDE 3.0.5 window manager, I can do nothing (I've found) to =
make the backspace key work. =20
1. Pressing it in konsole for instance results in:
2. stty erase ^[[3~
stty: invalid integer argument ` '
Try `stty --help' for more information
3. stty sane
now I just get "~' (tilde by itself) - which again I can't map to erase =
okay so that's one keyboard weirdness. The other is trying to configure =
the keyboard in Control Center.
1. I launch KDE Control Center
2. Go to Peripherals/Keyboard
3. First tab is layout - on this:
a. I select checkbox "Enable Keyboard Layouts
b. In Configuration section "Keyboard Model" drop down list is empty.
c. Primary Layout list contains only Bengali & Farsi
d. Primary Variant list is empty
e. Additional Layouts includes only Arabic, Bengali & Farsi.
f. Variant list is empty
4. Second tab is Options - on this:
a. I reset old options in Xkb Options section - no effect on anything.
Seems to me that I should be able to set the keyboard model here to =
something and have it possibly clear up my other problem (?). Also, if =
I knew which package/rpm controlled the keyboard settings, I could check =
it's install.. =20
Any hints, tips, suggestions on this? Anyone know which package =
contains the kde keyboard stuff?=20
