German keyboard map for QT/Embedded

QT/Embedded (version 3.x) when used with the standard pc keyboard on linux reads the scancodes directly from the tty device and thus has no knowledge of any keyboard maps that have been loaded for the linux console. The following patch provides a function into the keyboard devices of QT/Embedded which lets you assign a new scancode conversion table.

Apply qt-embedded-free-3.3.0-germankeymap.patch which should work with all releases of the 3.3.x series. Then add following function into the source containing your main() function and call GermanKeyboard() before entering your QT mainloop QApplication::exec().

#include <windowsystem_qws.h>
#include <qkbdpc101_qws.h>
void GermanKeyboard()
{
  QWSKeyboardHandler *kh=QWSServer::keyboardHandler();
  if(!kh) return;

If you're unsure have a look at this patch for the textedit example.

This mapping gives you access to all (printable) LATIN1 characters. The Alt Gr key does not work. It is replaced by the CTRL|Strg key. Thus to get a @ you have to press CTRL+q.

I am using this patch with a QT/Embedded 3.3.4 which was configured as follows: ./configure -thread -qt-gfx-vga16 -qt-kbd-tty -qt-kbd-usb -qt-mouse-pc

other languages

Of course this patch can be modified for other Languages as well. If you have a keyboard mapping for non-english languages / keyboard layouts, please tell me, so I can either publish them on this page or provide a link.

Auf Deutsch

QT Embedded 3.3.x unterstützt in der Standardkonfiguration nur die englische Tastaturbelegung. Auch wenn auf der Linux Konsole die deutsche Tastatur korrekt konfiguriert wurde, werden bei einem QTE Programm die Tastaturevents als englisch interpretiert. Dieser patch stellt nun die deutsche Tastaturbelegung für QT Embedded bereit.
