Changing shuffle key
  • kai March 2012

    i am new user of the Typematrix 2030 - and so far i really like it.
    My problem is: I am using the keyboard with a new german layout called Neo2 and therefore i need the shuffle key remaped as ISO_Level5_Shift NoSymbol ISO_Level5_Shift in the ubuntu Xmodmap.
    But this key seems to work different and i cant find the keycode with xev.
    Any help?
    Sorry for my rudimentary english…

    In order to remap the shuffle key, you have to put the keyboard in what is called "106 key mode". To do this press Fn + F3. Several keys will get remapped including the shuffle key, so that it is now re-programmable.

    See the following link for details on the 6 keys that get remapped:

    They are:
    The "shuffle" key becomes the "hiragana" key (scan code 123/0x7B)
    The "desktop" key becomes the "kanji" key (scan code 121/0x79)
    The "www" key becomes the "katakana" key (scan code 112/0x70)
    The "calc" key becomes "international 4" (scan code 125/0x7D)
    The backslash key is moved to where the "mail" key used to be (scan code 43/0x2B)
