Reddit: Re-map my keyboard

Monday 2nd of March 2015 06:31:56 AM

Hi guys,

Is there a way to remap keys on my keyboard even when I am not in an X session? Currently I am using setxkbmap but that only works if I start X.

For what it's worth, I am using Arch+i3, and my main need is to remap Capslock to Control, although I'd like to do some other stuff as well if possible.

Thanks for the help!

I was invited to the second Picademy back in July. The first day was workshops, education, and the second day was a pure hack day, and we had a bit of a chat with Eben [Upton] and some other people who wanted to support and build something.

Mesa's Android Support Is Currently In Bad Shape

While Mesa is talked about as being able to be built for Google's Android operating system to run these open-source graphics drivers on Android devices with OpenGL ES support, in reality there's a lot left to be desired. Over the years there's been a handful of developers working on Android Mesa support to let the popular open-source graphics drivers run over there -- from the Intel driver now that they're using HD Graphics within their low-power SoCs (rather than PowerVR), AMD has made a few steps toward Android netbook/laptop devices with Radeon graphics, and we're starting to see Gallium3D drivers for Qualcomm Adreno (Freedreno) and the Raspberry Pi (VC4) where there's interest from Android users.
