Description of problem:

The F10 X11 server seems to return keycodes breaking ~/.Xmodmap files which exist for decades. E.g. left Meta key is now 133, but was 115 formerly, similar changes exist for the other (right) Alt/Meta + arrow keys.

~/.Xmodmap can be probably adjusted to the new situation but this makes it impossible to use an NFS /home shared between several machines.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. xev
2. press left Meta key

Actual results:

reported as 'keycode 133' in F10

Expected results:

reported as 'keycode 115' in every previous release
Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2008-11-28 03:29:18 EST
Could we get /var/log/Xorg.0.log from the X session when no /etc/X11/xorg.conf is present, please?

Thank you

/etc/X11/xorg.conf was attached in the first comment already

Keycodes vary.  They're already not portable between, say, x86 and sparc machines.  Don't map by keycode.  Map by keysym.
