MirOS Manual: kbd_mode(1)


KBD_MODE(1)         UNIX Programmer's Manual          KBD_MODE(1)

NAME

     kbd_mode - recover the PC console keyboard

SYNOPSIS

     kbd_mode [ -a -u ]

DESCRIPTION

     Kbd_mode resets the PC console keyboard to a rational state.

OPTIONS

     The following options are supported:

     -a      Set the keyboard so that ASCII characters are read
             from the console.

     -u      Set the keyboard so that undecoded keyboard values
             are read from the console.

EXAMPLES

     If the server crashes or otherwise fails to put the keyboard
     back in ascii mode when it exits, it can leave your keyboard
     dead.  If you are able to login remotely, you can reset it
     typing:

          kbd_mode -a

     Conversely, changing the keyboard to ascii mode while the
     server is running will make the keyboard appear to be dead
     while the the mouse continues to work.  Again, if you are
     able to login remotely, you can reset it typing:

          kbd_mode -u
