Description Dov Grobgeld 2005-05-23 04:08:04 EDT
Description of problem:

The key <RWIN> on the keyboard (the second key to the right of the space bar) is
mapped by the x-server to button4. This makes it impossible to assign a mapping
to this key. In my particular case, it makes the following line in my .xkbmap
not to work:
   
    key <RWIN>  {       [  Multi_key], [Multi_key] };

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

fonts-xorg-100dpi-6.8.2-1
xorg-x11-font-utils-6.8.2-31
xorg-x11-xfs-6.8.2-31

xorg-x11-tools-6.8.2-31
xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU-6.8.2-31
fonts-xorg-75dpi-6.8.2-1

How reproducible:

Everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'xev'
2. Move mouse to xev window
3. Press RWIN key
  
Actual results:

Terminal prints:

ButtonPress event, serial 25, synthetic NO, window 0x1800001,
    root 0x58, subw 0x0, time 1055989, (91,151), root:(160,236),
    state 0x0, button 4, same_screen YES

ButtonRelease event, serial 25, synthetic NO, window 0x1800001,
    root 0x58, subw 0x0, time 1055989, (91,151), root:(160,236),
    state 0x800, button 4, same_screen YES


Expected results:

I would expect to get a keypress event, and thus get something like this.

KeyPress event, serial 25, synthetic NO, window 0x1800001,
    root 0x58, subw 0x0, time 1088976, (146,90), root:(215,175),
    state 0x0, keycode 114 (keysym ????, Multi_Key), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyRelease event, serial 28, synthetic NO, window 0x1800001,
    root 0x58, subw 0x0, time 1089030, (146,90), root:(215,175),
    state 0x2000, keycode 114 (keysym ???, Multi_Key), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
