Mostly just curious, I have an updated keymap that works but wonder if I’m committing a faux pas and leaving potential functionality on the table.
There’s hardly any software that distinguishes between the two keys. If you need a separate
Key_RightGui for something, you can put it in your keymap, but most people don’t.
i never heard of software distinguisng between left and right option or control keys either… But there they are…
Is there even a separate keycode for Key_RightGui? That would be interesting.
Yes, there is.
Quite a few do, though. VirtualBox for example defaults to
Right Control for input capture, as far as I remember.
Lots of software distinguishes between the keycodes for left and right
option) keys. Most significantly, right
alt is often interpreted as
More curiosity: what is ‘AltGr’?
This is a fairly decent explanation of what it is, and what it is used for.
There is one use of it I’m aware of, the Linux console uses LeftGui/RightGui to navigate left/right through VTs.
