KVM Conceptronic CKVM2U and Xwindows Scroll-lock twice don't works


I have two opensuse 11.3 first with x86 second with x86_64
I have connected the KVM and Scroll-lock button works doing "xmodmap -e 'add mod3 = Scroll_Lock'" in a terminal window.
If I do Ctrl+Alt+F1 to go to the console in both computers, pressing Scroll+lock twice works fine to change between computers but Scroll-lock twice don't works in XWindows runlevel.

I have tested too use wine plus windows control application that comes with the KVM.

Any Idea?

There's an .Xmodmap file often hidden somewhere. try it in there.

Yes, I have tried to put (xmodmap -e 'add mod3 = Scroll_Lock') in the ~/.Xmodmap file or set keymap from command line but I have obtained the same result, works in a tty (Ctrl+Alt+F1) console but not in a Graphic desktop Environment (level 5).

Solved

You can find the solution in the post:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ws-4175410825/


Basically:

mkdir -p ~/local/bin

and create the file ~/local/bin/switchcomputers with the contents:

!/bin/bash
xset led 3 && sleep 0.2 && xset -led 3 && sleep 2 && xset led 3 && sleep 0.2 && xset -led 3

save and quit, then

chmod +x ~/local/bin/switchcomputers

Thanks to Hikaru1024

Bye.
