These cute linux/unix keyboards


hi guys and girls,
Are any of you subscribing or having in possesion recent linux journal issues? Among their advertisements there is one about these cute keyboards, like the ones without numpad, etc. Can you post the link to that website here, or e-mail it to me, please? I am cleaning out my closets and stuff and I don't remember where I put the LJ issues, I still have some at work, so it is not a big deal I'll get it tomorrow, I was just thinking of a quick reply and click and go.
Thanks

I believe you are refering to the "Happy Hacking" keyboards.

If you go to this store, http://www.pfuca.com/products/hhkb/hhkbindex.html

Then you can find more info on them.

The reason I need it - I have space constrains and I don't even use the numpad, I used to UNIX keyboard layout (Sun ones) I always hit Caps Lock instead of Ctrrl, and it is confusing, so Caps Lock is maped to Ctrl by adding
Code:
Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
to my XF86Config - I don't even know why would one need it anyway.

It goes to Section InputDevice for your keyboard.
P.S. and if you don't like the layout of new ctrl key and you still have no use for Caps Lock other than accidentially hitting it while typing (for instance your password if booting to X) you can desable it with create a file .xmodmap in your home directory containg the lines
Quote:
remove Lock = Caps_Lock
and run
xmodmap .xmodmap on every bootup - place it in ~/.bash_profile for instance, no more Caps Lock, just be carefull if you activate the Caps Lock and then run the xmodmap .xmodmap your Caps Lock will lock activated - no lower case whatsoever - this is a trick I play with our net admin on his laptop once in a while when he pisses me off (it has no light for identification if the caps lock is activated or not)
