Aranym weird Keyboard behaviour

Post by Faucon2001 »

Hi,

My setup is : Ubuntu 10.13 + Aranym 0.9.15 + Emutos 0.9.3 + EasyMint 1.18

When I use this setup with my spanish keyboard, given that I have the proper Keyboard.TBL and the NVRAM setup to spanish, everything is working fine.
When I use this setup with a french keyboard (properly setup and working under Ubuntu) with the NVRAM set to French and the correct keyboard.tbl (French_P), all the keyboard is shifted 1 row up, that is to say : Key 1 = A, Key 2 = Z, Key Z = S, Key S = X and Key X = nothing ... Seems like scancodes are shifted up.
And the strangest thing is that if I press 'esc' during Emutos boot screen, the French keyboard is later working fine under Mint !!! 8O
This has been tested on 2 different machines, 2 different Linux and with different keyboards (USB, wireless and PS2) : same strange result.

This problem does not appears with the same install running on Aranym windows (I don't know for OSX as I don't have french keyboard to test) :roll:

Any clue on how to solve this issue as I am building an universal install (kind of super AFROS) and it should run the same on any system whatever the keyboard is ?

Thanks,

I did some further testing.
- Aranym 0.9.15 Linux + emutos or TOS 4.04 with Spanish keyboard : keyboard working well.
- Aranym 0.9.15 Linux + emutos or TOS 4.04 with French keyboard : keyboard with the keys switched up one row.
- Aranym 0.9.15 OSX + emutos or TOS 4.04 with Spanish or French Keyboard : keyboard working well.
- Aranym 0.9.15 Windows + emutos or TOS 4.04 with French keyboard : keyboard working well.
Also, under Aranym 0.9.15 Linux, if you press 'esc' key during boot, the French keyboard is recognized correctly.

These test have been repeated on different machines and different builds of Linux ( Ubuntu and Xubuntu)
So the issue is coming from Aranym Linux and not from emutos.

Any clue how to solve it?
Who is maintaining Aranym Linux?

I suggest you try the ARAnyM mailing list instead.

I had Aranym setup like a Firebee thanks to the help from users here. I dont use it however as there are no applications that I can use to make it a daily user. No email, no true internet browsers.
If we could somehow catch up on the software side I think it would evolve quicker.
