And here we are in December 2011 and Slackware 13.37 X (fvwm95) still doesn't see the essential Scroll_Lock key! If I execute
xmodmap -e 'add mod3 = Scroll_Lock'
the light comes on, but the keypress function apparently gets swallowed by something.
<scroll_lock><scroll_lock> (the manual with the switch says EVERY OS including linux can use this) works fine as long as both machines are running console-only, but that's not what's needed.
How could such a basic problem remain unsolved for so long?
