OS/2 Keyboard Layout


Wendy Krieger:
I wonder if there is any kind of OS/2 keyboard layout editor.  I want to put a few extra letters on my keyboard, like þ, ñ, ß, etc.

I saw something that was on hobbes i think, that might do it, but i'm still waiting in eCom to come up with the necessary key.,

You could try WIN95KEY from hobbes.  Be aware you have to be able to read the keycode.

Dariusz Piatkowski:
I've been using WIN95KEY here for years now, primarily to map the Win keys to convenient OS/2 functions, so I cannot comment re: additional key mapping. However, as ivan noted, I think this should be possible.

Alfredo Fernández Díaz:
For completeness' sake, there is Keyboard Redefiner 2. This little Warp 3 -era program redefines the standard 101/102 keyboard to a customizable layout in every subsequent session except WIN-OS/2 sessions. It is ideal to play around with modifying keyboard layouts.

With so many filenames changed in Hobbes, it was a little harder to find than it used to be, but it's still there:

If this is topic is still of interest, however, and real extended or otherwise fixed keyboard layouts are needed, I can produce and compile them for VIO sessions (OS/2 or DOS), PM, or both. Just send me a private message.
