kbmap, kbremap – show a list of available keyboard maps and switch
kbmap [ file... ] |
kbremap [ –m mod ] [ –k scancode ] map1 map2 ...
Kbmap shows a single column consisting of the names of keyboard
maps for different alphabets available on the system. With no
arguments kbmap will look for files in /sys/lib/kbmap. |
Clicking the right mouse button will highlight the entry and force the keyboard mapping defined in the corresponding file to become current for the system; typing 'q' quits.
Kbremap reads keyboard events from standard input, filters out a shortcut to change the keyboard map, and writes the result to standard output. The shortcut cycles through the keyboard maps provided as arguments. By default this shortcut is mapped to Ctrl + Space. The –m and –k flags change the default mod and key used respectfully. Mod is given as a numeric shift layer as understood by kbdfs(8).
Kbmap and kbremap require that the file /dev/kbmap served by kbdfs(8)
exists and is writable.
Use kbremap with /dev/kbdtap provided by rio(4):|
