I think the answer may depend on the type of Apple laptop (MacBook,
IBook, PowerBook) and the OS version (e.g. 10.4 or 10.5). The OS
version affects (probably) whether you are running XFree X11.app or
Well it is a MacBook Air, first edition 64 Giga flash hard drive.
All that said, for my non-notebook iMac 10.5.6 system running the
X.org server and xquartz, XQuartz 2.3.3_rc5 (xorg-server 1.5.3-apple6),
I have the following in my .Xmodmap (which works):
add Shift = Shift_L Shift_R
add Lock = Caps_Lock
add Control = Control_L
add Mod1 = Alt_L
add Mod2 = Meta_L
add Mod3 = Mode_switch
add Mod4 = Super_R
add Mod5 = Hyper_R
That looks very interesting but that hyper and super keys, where are the
physically? On the left or right of the space key?
Note, there exists a race condition on startup with the beta X
server I use which means that on some machines (my iMac G5 being
one) the ~/.Xmodmap will not install at startup. I have to
remember to run xmodmap by hand after start. The non-beta Apple X
server does not have that problem.
Well that is minor thing, I still have to do this for my Kubuntu
