how to use .Xdefaults file for keymaps
Posted on 2006-06-24
In the xterm man pages I can see the following text towards the end. It seems that X should insert the text (i.e. next, step, continue, etc.) whenever I press the F-key. However, when I add this code to my .Xdefaults and then run "xdrb -merge .Xdefaults" I am not able to press the F-key.
In my config I changed the F-keys to something lower, such as F7, but it still did not work.
*VT100.Translations: #override <Key>F13: keymap(dbx)
<Key>F14: keymap(None) \n\
<Key>F17: string("next") string(0x0d) \n\
<Key>F18: string("step") string(0x0d) \n\
<Key>F19: string("continue") string(0x0d) \n\
<Key>F20: string("print ") insert-selection(PRIMARY, CUT_BUFFER0)
Can someone please tell me how to enable this? I would like to press the F-key for doing commands.
