-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 dear mailinglist! we are using the tn5250 as an alternative way to connect to an as/400 system of one of our clients. this client wants to have a special keymapping - which follows the keymapping he's using on his other terminal-emulators. i've read all documentation i was able to find about keymappings in tn5250, unfortunately i was unable to figure out, what to do... i don't have a really large idea about keymaps in linux which probably doesn't make the problem easier to solve for me... :-) first of all, i've figured out, that there are various ways to change tn5250's keymap - the most often suggested is to change the user's xkeybordmap. is this the right way? and when changing it, doesn't this have drawbacks on the behaviour of x itself which can be problematic? the mappings we should have (among others...): esc sys attn shift-esc sys req ctrl-f5 record ctrl-f6 play ctrl-f7 rpause* pause clear* shift-ins dup* left-ctrl reset/ctrl* left-ctrl-alt quit right-ctrl enter enter field exit shift-enter newline ctrl-enter carrier return those marked with a *: i'm not quite sure, if they're special functions provided by the windows-terminal-emulator. my questions are: - - is there any step-by-step howto of creating keymaps? - - is there maybe a software/helper-utility used for this? i played shortly with "xkeycaps" which didn't help a lot... - - is there a table with the scancodes/escape-sequences which are special for the 5250-terminal? (like sys attn) i looked in quite a few EBCDIC-conversion-tables and didn't find anything usefull. - - can - maybe - someone send me his keymap as an example - if possible a version which uses those special characters - - it's also possible that i didn't understand anything right and that i'm completly wrong. help would be very much appreciated and deserves a lot of thanks in advance :-) i wish you a good week, Pascal Mainini -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.2.3 (GNU/Linux) iD8DBQE/pQtySKs3riTPr4cRAgYNAJ4odZjAyyxZ13FuCvbhtCnAi7P8RgCfUlnU ORq0RkXpzWIX8VHI929YnZw= =VA7g -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
