    Changing Keyboard in KDE

    We are a Windows Company. However, there is some desire to us Linux. Most of the problems have a solution at hand, some with disadvantages. However, we use a telnet program to connect to the main system (a plain old UNIX).
    In order to work on this sysem, we have to set the F keys to non-standard values ( ^[OQ) etc.
    How can I do this to work on the KDE desktop under a terminal?
    I have found commands such as loadkeyboard mykeybordmap, but they don't do the trick in the KDE desktop.

    Re: Changing Keyboard in KDE

    Do you have these keymapping working under console mode?

    You can remap standard keys under X with xmodmap. man xmodmap for more info. Or you can remap standard keys under X by adding the new key mapping to ~/.Xdefaults or ~/.Xresources depending upon what your linux distro uses. I don't know if it would work for non-standard keys or not. Might try looking at the manpage for xterm. Seems like there should be a way to do this. I'll see if I can't pass this along to someone that might know.
