NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       xkbcomp - compile XKB keyboard description

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       xkbcomp [-option...] keymap-source

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Shows  all  keyboard  information,  reporting  implicit or
       derived information as a comment. Affects only format output.
   Produces  a C header file as output (.h extension).
       Computes defaults for any missing components, such as  key
       names.  Specifies top-level directories to be searched for
       files included by the keymap description.  Specifies a map
       to be compiled from an XKB directory file (not implemented
       yet).  Specifies a name for  the  generated  output  file.
       The  default is the name of the source file with an appropriate
 extension for the output format.  Specifies a  list
       of  optional  parts.  Compilation errors in optional parts
       are not fatal. Parts may consist of any combination of the
       letters  c,  g,  k, s, or t that specify the compatibility
       map, geometry, keycodes, symbols, and types, respectively.
       Specifies  the  root  directory  for  relative path names.
       Forces  synchronization  of  X  requests.   Controls   the
       reporting of warnings during compilation.  A warning level
       of 0 disables all warnings; a warning level of 10  enables
       them  all.  Generates a source description of the keyboard
       as output (.xkb extension).  Generates a  compiled  keymap
       file as output (.xkm extension).

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  xkbcomp  keymap compiler converts a description of an
       XKB keymap into one of several output formats.   The  most
       common use for xkbcomp is to create a compiled keymap file
       (.xkm extension) which can be read directly by XKB-capable
       X servers or utilities.  The keymap compiler can also produce
 C header files or XKB source  files.   The  C  header
       files  produced by xkbcomp can be included by X servers or
       utilities that need a built-in  default  keymap.  The  XKB
       source  files  produced  by xkbcomp are fully resolved and
       can be used to verify that the files which typically  make
       up  an XKB keymap are merged correctly or to create a single
 file which contains  a  complete  description  of  the

       The  source  may  specify an X display, an an file. Unless
       explicitly specified, the format of destination depends on
       the  format  of  the  source. Compiling an (keymap source)
       file generates an (compiled keymap file)  by  default.  If
       the source is an file or an X display, xkbcomp generates a
       keymap source file by default.

       If the destination is an X display,  the  keyamp  for  the
       display is updated with the compiled keymap.

       The  name  of the destination is usually computed from the
       name of the source with the extension replaced  as  appropriate.
  When compiling a single map from a file that contains
 several maps,  xkbcomp  constructs  the  destination
       file  name  by  appending  an appropriate extension to the
       name of the map that is to be used.
