Replacing numeric keypad key comma with more usable dot

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

xmodmap is included in kiosk so i would go with it as per:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/xmodmap
http://xahlee.info/linux/linux_xmodmap_tutorial.html
(more howtoos on google)

once you find correct 'xmodmap' command syntax you may add it to 003-settings.xzm/etc/xdg/openbox/autostart.

btw: moving thread to the 'User's modifications to the Kiosk ISO' category.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Thanks a lot fanthom ! :beer:

Solution works perfectly :good: !

I modified with the following code in the file /etc/xdg/openbox/autostart in the 003-settings.xml module :

Code: Select all

xmodmap -e 'keycode 91 = KP_Delete KP_Decimal'


Thanks again !
