NAME

       mk_modmap - translate a Linux keytable file into an xmodmap file

SYNOPSIS

       mk_modmap [ -v ] keymap_file

DESCRIPTION

       The  mk_modmap command tries to translate a Linux console keytable file
       into a file that can be parsed by  xmodmap,  and  used  within  X.   It
       outputs the results to standard out.

       If the -v flag is used, verbose output is given.

       It  requires the X header files to be installed.  (In Debian, these are
       in the "xlibs-dev" package).

NOTES

       Since XFree version 2.1, X  initialises  its  keymap  using  the  Linux
       keymap, so xmodmap will often be superflous.
