Consistent Keyboard Configuration
The techniques for configuring and programming the keyboard for the Linux kernel, the X Window System, xterm, bash, less, Netscape, minicom and Emacs have been presented. Table 1. Configuration Files and Commands summarizes the configuration files and commands.
After following these instructions, the keyboard should be configured to act more like the keyboard the typical user is accustomed to. The editing keys will perform as labeled. The Caps Lock and left CTRL keys will be switched. Various other keys will perform useful functions. Furthermore, the basic techniques discussed here can be applied to other computer programs which permit configuration of the keyboard.
