Hi all

Hope this is the best forum to ask in ...

I need to print some keyboard layouts at life size.

xkbprint has a -full option which is supposed to be life size, but there does not seem to be a way to tell it to use a large piece of paper (eg A2 not A4) ... the results seem tailored for A4 or possibly US letter.

Does anyone know how to do this? The keyboards in question will not fit on an A4, or even an A3.

sample command, borrowed off the web:

xkbcomp /usr/share/X11/xkb/geometry/microsoft - | xkbprint -color -full -o - - | ps2pdf - > ms.pdf

Thanks, Ian
