isn't there any single keymap which enables a mac-keyboard on a ibook to be used just like in mac os? i use a powerbook besides the ibook, and regardless of the fact that there isn't a single usable keymap (without remapping certain keys), i would like to able to use the keyboard just as on my mac - with those shift-alt-7 (for \ for instance) scheme ...

please help.

Perhaps I haven't dug around enough on this, but I haven't been able to change the behaviour of my Caps Lock key. I'll just worry about the console for now, but it doesn't behave properly in X, either. I've remapped it thusly:
Code:
keycode  58 = Control

I have gentoo configured to load my map, and my other remappings work fine, but this one has no effect. The caps don't lock, and I'm grateful for that, but it certainly doesn't work like a control key. (I don't think it did in the first place, although it did function as The Cursed Key when I was running Slackintosh). Not sure that it makes any difference, but I'm working on a French Canadian keyboard as you can see here:
Code:
oedipa:~$ dmesg | grep adb
adb: starting probe task...
adb devices: [2]: 2 c4 [7]: 7 1f
input: ADB keyboard on adb2:2.c4/input
input: ADB Powerbook buttons on adb7:7.1f/input
I'm working on a Powerbook6,8, the current 12".
