Re: keys under dosemu

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


well, I appreciate any input I can get.   

here is where I am:

1) gnome has extensive keyboard configuration options but none that I've tried 
have any noticeable effect on Dosemu.  I'm not sure it matters, however, because 

2) according to SCODE, under OS/2's Dos window, XP, and DosBox under Ubuntu 
Intrepid, Alt-Backspace produces 0EF0 while under Dosemu it produces 0E00.  not 
surprisingingly, Alt-Backspace XyWrite under DosBox deletes the previous word, 
while under Dosemu it doesn't do anything.  so, it would make sense to turn to 

3) kc.exe and keycode.exe to produce a new keyboard for use under Dosemu, 
except I don't know how to find a US.KEY file and wouldn't know how to modify it 
for that one keystroke if I did.  I guess the documentation in is very 
thorough -- if you know what you're doing, that is.
