Numeric Keypad problems 12 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 0
I have a problem with the numeric keypad not working when running my client from a SUN box with Solaris.

The keypad keys all give a full-stop (.) as the output.
I tried moding the xmodmap option but found the numeric keys 1,3,5,7,9 all have the same keycode (190). Keys 2,4,6,8 can be done no problem.

I have installed the client on a PC and get no problem.

Any help gratefully recieved

You don't indicate which (foreign) keyboard, if any, you are using. There were some keyboard mapping issues with the initial release of our native X clients. The latest distribution (currently 2.1.4) has a fix for this problem.

You can download the latest distribution from here.

OK I have downloaded the updated version on the sw including the latest Clients.

On installing the latest client onto my Solaris 8 system it now wont run as the file libxkbfile.so.4 is missing.

As to your other question I am in the UK using UK Keyboard

thanks

keycode 190 12 Years, 7 Months ago  
Hi

Seeing the same issue using a UNIX client, Solaris 2.6, using a Type 4 Sun keyboard, with Keytable modifier UK_5.

I noticed the key mapping issues when using the "xevent viewer" /usr/openwin/demo/xev during a Go-Global session..
Key code 190 seems to belong to numerous keys, not just one.
The key code is associated with the following keys;;;;

">." "~#" and for the numeric pad keys "1 END" "3 PgDn" "7 Home" "9 PgUp"

Checked the key code values for a normal telnet session between a host and client with the displayed Xevent viewer utility being sent from the host to the client.... all keys had individual codes.
