Keymapping for MS natural USB keyboard
Comment 1 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2004-09-10 19:05:15 UTC
fixed in xkeyboard-config
Comment 2 Ilya Konstantinov 2004-09-29 08:30:51 UTC
The correct solution for this would be to add support for Linux /dev/input/event
keyboard events. This device file reports reliable key names for all keyboards,
no matter how they are connected.

Are there any plans to allow specifying Linux Input key names (see
<linux/input.h>) instead of the regular <AE01>, <AE02> etc. names, when on the
Linux platform?
Comment 3 Ilya Konstantinov 2004-09-29 08:46:18 UTC
Apparently there is an evdev patch for xorg already, so I'd say this bug should
depend on 968.
Comment 4 Erik Andren 2006-03-12 23:12:19 UTC
Is this merged into mainline xorg as of current?
Comment 5 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2006-04-05 07:20:32 UTC
Assigning to xkeyboard-config and closing (since it is in our CVS for 1.5 years
