Subject description: keyboard maps in Puppy
 

The computer I am using has a generic 104 key
international keyboard with US layout.
Under DOS or Windows, there are two-key
combinations (unfortunately, not the same)
that allow to type the cedilla character, which
is not present in the keyboard.
I could not find any such combination in Puppy
(Racy 5.5), not even the alt+keypad method
works.
Is there a way to enable this character in the
keyboard ?
Two more general questions:
How are the keyboard codes mapped to ASCII
codes under Linux ?
BTW, does Linux use codepages ?

Some info for Racy 5.2.2 on generating the cedilla character in geany, seamonkey, openoffice and libreoffice
(probably would work in other software also)

No idea if it will work in Racy 5.5

Hallo, Jose.

You're talking about one of these, yes?

****** 'Ç' ******

The little squiggly tail underneath the 'C', yes?

The easiest way I know of to get these with standard typing in Puppy is to use the Xkb Config Manager, from here:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=13292

This is a very old thread, it's true; the package mentioned is one of the old .pup packages, not the .pet ones! However, I forget where I found it, but I do have a modern .pet package for this.

You can control just about every aspect of your keyboard with this, including setting the language layout you wish to use, and the 'modifiers' you want (Ctrl, Alt, Esc, Alt GR, etc) for accessing the language layouts you require.....and cedillas are included.

(That 'Ç' is from the French layout, and you get that by pressing CapsLock->'9'. You do need to experiment with some of these layouts to find out exactly where the keys that you want are.....but there's only so many keys it can be!)

You can get the .pet package from my MediaFire a/c, here:-

http://www.mediafire.com/file/vvoc8oy2nmora7j/XkbConfigurationManager_fbxkb_keypad-1.0.pet

Up to you, of course. I don't think you're going to find any method that will allow you to press a key, then type a letter (any letter), and it will automatically come out with a cedilla. I believe Xkb's Spanish layout should be able to provide that.

Let us know if it helps at all, please.


Mike. Wink

Sorry for the delay in answering, but I was tinkering with xorg.conf.
Now the cedilla (ç , Ç ) appears OK, and in the same place as it
did in Windows.
Thank you all.
