I had another go, because I realised that while I have mapped my ‘Scroll Lock’ key to ‘mod3’, I never use it anyways, so I might as well just map ‘Escape’ to ‘mod3’, which is otherwise unused (‘mod3’, that is; and then use ‘xcape’). So I did the following: $ cat .Xmodmap add Mod3 = Scroll_Lock $ xmo...

‘Update’: I just tried to remap my escape key to Super_L (via keycodes; escape is keycode ‘9’), and then just made my Super_L a Mod4 again. Obviously, this just removes my escape key, which doesn't help and prevents me from using xcape with it, but while both Super_L and my escape key were mapped to...

I'm on i3 and even when I have a winkey i keep it as that and use capslock as my wm mod. I guess it would depend on what keys you use for commands, I'm not familiar with xmonad, capslock works well for i3 because all the most used commands are on the right hand. Yes, Capslock would work well, inasm...

How to use tiling window managers with winkeyless keyboards?

Hi everyone, as far as I know there are a quite a few Unix/Linux people here that might use both old(er)/winkeyless keyboards and a tiling window manager. Thus, I thought I should try my luck here, after I tried to get help on reddit and unix.stackexchange.com, to no avail. I hope it's not off-topic...

Obligatory status update: I received the package today (in fact, I just got it from a neighbour who accepted it for me)! 1. This feels rather weird, but not necessarily bad. 2. Although the Board is currently in (some kind of) QWERTZ layout, which I normally use most of the time, I can't type for sh...

Concerning the AltGr key: I don't know whether Rimrul has changed the location of the AltGr key, but Daniel had the board beforehand and As a altgr-intl layout user I'm currently contemplating where I would put AltGr to enable the third layer. Probably bottom most single unit key. Have you tried tha...

I just wanted to reply that I don't experience this issue when I read the title again and noticed that not only am I using a G81 at the moment, it's also PS/2…

To add something of value: With a G84-4100LCMDE-2 I get Qs, then As, and then Ps (tested using Mousepad).
