NAMEfilter-key, filter-keytrans - Generic key event translator
SYNOPSISfilter-key: [<file>] filter-keytrans: [<file>]
DESCRIPTIONThis filter translates key events according to a set of translation rules. This can be used to remap a keyboard.
OPTIONSfile The name of the configuration file. If none given, the filter will first look for the file filter/keytrans in the user GGI directory ($HOME/.ggi/ on UNIX), then in the base GGI directory if not found.
CONFIGURATIONThe mapping is specified through a simple text file, each line being a translation rule. A line starting with a # is a comment. Each line must contain 10 values in the following order: modifier_mask Consider only the bits set here. modifier_value The bits set above must match this value. button_in, label_in, symbol_in If this is not KEY_UNMAPPED==0xffff, the button/label/symbol of the incoming key must match these fields. modifier_changemask Change these bits from the original modifiers... modifier_ormask ... set them to these - one shouldn't use that. button_out, label_out, symbol_out The data that is then sent by the keymapper. Any fields set to KEY_UNMAPPED==0xffff will be copied from the incoming event.
EXAMPLEMapping a symbol: # Take any key that produces a symbol of 0x41 ('A') map it to ESC # # modmsk modval buttin lablin symin modchg modor butout labout symout 0x0000 0x0000 0xffff 0xffff 0x0041 0x0000 0x0000 0xffff 0xffff 0x001b FILTER-KEY(7)
