I'd like to get tn5250, running in a linux console (control-alt-F1
thru 6 typically),
to make the numeric keypad + and - keys to always act as field+ and
The normal top row +/= and _/- keys are fine as they are.
I'd also like Shift + Tab to work as backtab.
I've managed to get the Shift + Tab -> backtab remapping to work; this
(currently) requires modifying the Linux kernel keymap.
This is IMO a *very* ugly solution, though it's what we've done with our
thin client terminals. It works decently as long as you're dedicating
the machine to the purpose.
Left control -> Reset mapping is a worse problem, in that it seems to be
impossible to get left control to work as a reset key but also still
work as a control key key.
And Enter/Field Exit, Right Control/ Enter are in the same boat, though
those don't work properly in xt5250 either.
