Description

NAME
       xmakemap - make a keyboard mapping to be used as input to xmodmap

SYNOPSIS
       xmakemap

DESCRIPTION
       xmakemap  will produce a keyboard mapping in a form that is suitable as
       input to the xmodmap(1) command.  xmakemap writes its output to stdout.
       Typical usage of xmakemap is to redirect output from xmakemap to a file
       (e.g., $HOME/.xmodmaprc), edit this file to make  necessary  customiza-
       tions, and then run xmodmap on the file (i.e., $HOME/.xmodmaprc).

       For example:

              xmakemap > $HOME/.xmodmaprc
              [... make necessary customization to $HOME/.xmodmaprc ...]
              xmodmap $HOME/.xmodmaprc

       If you would like your keytable to be customized each time you start an
       X session, you should place the  appropriate  command  in  the  session
       startup file for your desktop environment.

       For example:

              if [ -f $HOME/.xmodmaprc ]; then
                  xmodmap $HOME/.xmodmaprc
              fi
