NAME

       XkbIgnoreExtension -  Prevents core X library keyboard functions from using the X Keyboard
       Extension

SYNOPSIS

       Bool XkbIgnoreExtension (Bool *ignore);

ARGUMENTS

       ignore True means ignore the extension

DESCRIPTION

       If a server supports the Xkb extension, the X library normally implements preXkb  keyboard
       functions  using the Xkb keyboard description and state. The server Xkb keyboard state may
       differ from the preXkb keyboard state. This difference does not affect most  clients,  but
       there  are  exceptions.  To  allow  these  clients  to work properly, you may instruct the
       extension not to use Xkb functionality.

       Call XkbIgnoreExtension to prevent core X library keyboard  functions  from  using  the  X
       Keyboard  Extension. You must call XkbIgnoreExtension before you open a server connection;
       Xkb does not provide a way to enable or disable use of the extension once a connection  is
       established.

       XkbIgnoreExtension  tells  the  X  library  whether to use the X Keyboard Extension on any
       subsequently opened X display connections.  If  ignore  is  True,  the  library  does  not
       initialize  the Xkb extension when it opens a new display. This forces the X server to use
       compatibility mode and communicate with the client using only core protocol  requests  and
       events.  If  ignore is False, the library treats subsequent calls to XOpenDisplay normally
       and uses Xkb extension requests, events, and  state.  Do  not  explicitly  use  Xkb  on  a
       connection for which it is disabled.  XkbIgnoreExtension returns False if it was unable to
       apply the ignore request.

RETURN VALUES

       True           The XkbIgnoreExtension returns True if

       False          The XkbIgnoreExtension function returns False if it was unable to apply the
                      ignore request.
