hi forum members,
I am new to this forum, hopefully I give you enough information to explain the problem.
Recently, I changed my distribution from debian wheezy to debian jessie. In doing that, fvwm was upgraded:
In .fvwmrc, I had two key mappings defined that did the same page switch:
Key F20 A N GotoDeskAndPage prev
Key Pause A N GotoDeskAndPage prev
In .xmodmaprc, I have redefined the SysRq key so that it generates a F20 event. This worked fine. However, after the upgrade, the mapping of those redefined keys (like F20) stopped working (I have more of them).
The xev utility currently shows me that the key redefinition works correctly; when I press SysRq, I get
KeyRelease event, serial 40, synthetic NO, window 0x2c00001,
root 0x9a, subw 0x0, time 52361709, (141,-10), root:(202,403),
state 0x0, keycode 107 (keysym 0xffd1, F20), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XFilterEvent returns: False
The current situation is: The Pause key does a the page switch, but the SysRq key (F20) does no page switch. When I am in a editor, the key results in some garbage in the text, so fvwm clearly does not ‘consume’ them any more.
I hope you can guide me on tracking down what is going on and what I can do to solve this.
thanks for your help, Ruud
