[parisc-linux] Dead keys in X

(My apologies for spamming the entire list with HTML.
Mozilla worked fine for my first message, but since then 
seems to refuse to produce vanilla text messages.
I'm now trying with a different mail client; hopefully
that sorts it out.)

I tried using 
	xmodmap -e "keycode 0xE0 = i"
but the result was the same.  I think the bigger problem
here is that the 'o'-button sends nothing at all.  If it
doesn't even produce an X event to start with, it can't 
be remapped.

Anyone with some Xpertise out there who can say where 
the server assigns keycodes in the first place?

Hi Andrew,

Just an idea: Does 
		xmodmap -e "keycode 0xE0 = i"
works ?
