Hi,

After some more reading on the Xorg site and modes, the keystrokes require the
KEYPAD+ and KEYPAD- which are not on the laptop.

Is there anyway to map them from other keys?

Thanks,

Hi,

I have used the XF86 for many years and have always liked the 'zooming'
feature of changing the screen mode on the fly with the CTRL-Alt-'+' or
CTRL-Alt-'-' combinations.

I am currently running with SuSe 10.1 on both a desktop and an IBM T42
Laptop. The 'zooming' works on the desktop but not the laptop.

I am speculating that the problem might just be the keyboard on the laptop.
But since I do not have a keyboard that will work to plug into the laptop I
cannot debug it that way. Is there some other way to see what the keyboard
is getting for key strokes?

If someone has a better explanation & fix I would like to hear it.


Thanks,
