Thanks. I'd like to identify this symbol here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/obra/9664 ... 353286814/

Looks like a phi to me.

Though I see this thread is all about false positives! These were cryptic boards.

Thanks. That was one I couldn't figure out as the legend was crooked, perhaps because it is lowercase. I got everything figured out except the double bars on front of the \| key.

MMcM seems to agree:
https://github.com/MMcM/lmkbd2/blob/mas ... ard.c#L866

Code: Select all

KEYSYM(KS_SC_013, ",righttack,phi");
which is then linked to the F key
https://github.com/MMcM/lmkbd2/blob/mas ... ard.c#L950

Code: Select all

PC_KEY(013, HID_KEYBOARD_SC_F, KS_SC_013), /* f */
I also think he mixed up lefttack and righttack in his code ...

Again, I don't know what you are trying to accomplish doing this, but I am working on a similar project.
I planned to try the idea of adding front-printed symbols for the keyset design that I ran. The keyset is:
