Projects / wmxkb


wmxkb shows and controls XKB groups (XFree86 key maps). It can be used as a dockable/swallowed applet with Window Maker, BlackBox and clones (fluxbox, pwm, etc), or any window manager that supports swallowing, including Afterstep, GNOME 1, kwm 1 (KDE), fvwm, and clones. It can also be run in a normal window with any window manager. wmxkb gets group names and codes straight from XKB, features individual font and colour settings for each key group, assigns additional keys for switching groups,or setting a particular group, and can bind a shell script to run whenever a particular group is activated.
