mk_modmap



SYNOPSIS
       mk_modmap [ -v ] keymap_file


DESCRIPTION
       The  mk_modmap command tries to translate a Linux console keytable file
       into a file that can be parsed by xmodmap, and used within X.  It  out-
       puts the results to standard out.

       If the -v flag is used, verbose output is given.

       It  requires the X header files to be installed.  (In Debian, these are
       in the "xlibs-dev" package).

NOTES
       Since XFree version 2.1, X  initialises  its  keymap  using  the  Linux
       keymap, so xmodmap will often be superfluous.
