This is an old revision of the document!
I bought a keyboard in korea, with background LED and hangul on its keys. Quite cheap for this quality and LED backlight. This document my reminder for using it on linux, as the keyboard needs minor tweaking for my usage on Linux.

The keyboard is usable as is with Xorg, I just have the habit of using the right ctrl-key together with the cursor keys to change the virtual screen. When starting “xev”, one sees that the right ctrl-key gets recognized by Xorg, with keycode 131. It is mapped to “Hangul” though, and windowmaker does not recognize the key when running “wmprefs”.
xmodmap -e "clear lock" xmodmap -e "clear control" xmodmap -e "add control = Control_L Control_R" xmodmap -e "keycode 131 = Control_R"
