Hello.

On KDE the iBooks shift lock doesn't work, LED is functional but no effect on typing. Is there a fix to get it working?

It works just fine here on my PB, what layout are you using? What does xev report as the button press? Are you sure you didn't bind something else to that button?

I'm not familiar with this section, made it once in the beginning.

Is that fine?
Code:
ection "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Keyboard0"
        Driver          "kbd"

        Option          "XkbGeometry"   "macintosh"
        Option          "XkbOptions"    "ctrl:nocaps, lv3:lwin_switch"

        Option          "XkbModel"      "pc105"
        Option          "LeftAlt"       "Meta"
        Option          "RightAlt"      "LWin"

        Option          "Xkblayout"     "de"
EndSection


xev:
Code:
KeyPress event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x6400001,
    root 0x4c, subw 0x0, time 1725755360, (101,143), root:(103,181),
    state 0x0, keycode 66 (keysym 0xffe3, Control_L), same_screen YES,
    XKeysymToKeycode returns keycode: 37
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    XFilterEvent returns: False

You need USD HID (for USB human interface devices, keyboards, mice, joysticks etc.) enabled, and the linux joystick driver which it looks like you already have enabled.

I'm not sure what you're referring to, the joystick has nothing to do with this.

Well, there's your problem. :) You disabled the CapsLock with "ctrl:nocaps". Remove that and it should work correctly.

Ok, thanks.

Beside the iBook's keyboard I'm using an USB Windows keyboard which behaves kind of different, the key's Alt Gr, Alt, Win, Ctrl are behaving different than the MAC keys. Which key on the MAC keyboard equals the Win-key?
