Home > Remapping > xmodmap


An xmodmap is an easy way to quickly try out a new layout using X11, on linux or unix. No files need to be permanently installed. Download the xmodmap file, then switch to that layout using the following command:


$ xmodmap MyDownloadedFile


You can switch back by logging out.


An xmodmap file is great for quickly trying a layout. You can use this method for a permanent installation (by running xmodmap from some login script) but it may be more practical to use an xkb file.
