x86: Using the Remapping Script

Follow these steps to create and use your remapping script:

  1. Create a file in your home directory that is called fkeys by using any text editor.

  2. Type in the script as shown in fkeys Script.

  3. Save the changes and quit the editor.

  4. At the prompt, type the following command.

    $ xmodmap fkeys 

    Note –

    You must be in the same directory as the script file.

  5. Click a mouse button in the Workspace to make the script effective.

    After you complete these steps, you can use the function keys as Help, Cut, Copy, Paste, Undo, and Front keys.
