MK_MODMAP(8)              (2002-02-22)               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.
