Legacy Keymaps

X-Win32 strives to keep up with the latest changes in X Server technology. However new changes in the X Server sometimes break compatibility with older systems. The structure of keyboard maps has changed significantly between X11 versions.

For users who still need to connect to older systems, keyboard maps from older X11 versions are available here.

  1. Download the attached zip file*
  2. Extract the xkb folder
  3. Rename the Program Files\StarNet\X-Win32 201*\xkb folder to xkb_old
  4. Copy the new xkb folder into Program Files\StarNet\X-Win32 201*\
  5. Restart X-Win32

*For Optimal compatibility, download the xkb files directly from the remote system and use those files in place of the ones in the zip file. These files are typically located in

RHEL4 /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb
RHEL5/6 /usr/share/X11/xkb
Solaris /usr/openwin/lib/X11/xkb
