MK_MODMAP(8)                         System Manager's Manual                         MK_MODMAP(8)

NAME
       mk_modmap - translate a Linux keytable file into an xmodmap file

SYNOPSIS
       mk_modmap [ -v ] keymap_file

DESCRIPTION
       The  mk_modmap  command  tries to translate a Linux console keytable file into a file that
       can be parsed by xmodmap, and used within X.  It outputs the results to standard out.

       If the -v flag is used, verbose output is given.

       It requires the X header files to be installed.  (In Debian, these are in the  "xlibs-dev"
       package).

NOTES
       Since  XFree version 2.1, X initialises its keymap using the Linux keymap, so xmodmap will
       often be superfluous.

SEE ALSO
       dumpkeys(1), keymaps(5), xmodmap(1)
