I’ve just successfully remaped my reform keyboard for the first time. It’s a great relief to finally have ctrl next to the A key where it belongs! However, I noticed a strange quirk I can’t understand.
It seems that no matter what keycode I put in the key next to left shift, it sends a forward-delete keycode (119). Oddly in the default firmware it’s mapped to HID_KEYBOARD_SC_NON_US_BACKSLASH_AND_PIPE rather than delete.
Here’s the matrix in my version: *temp*
The indicated key can be bound to any value, but it always produces a forward-delete keycode. xev shows this:
KeyPress event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0x2800001,
root 0xd0, subw 0x0, time 3252890, (515,416), root:(515,416),
state 0x0, keycode 119 (keysym 0xffff, Delete), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (7f) “”
XmbLookupString gives 1 bytes: (7f) “”
XFilterEvent returns: False
Any idea what’s going on here?
