I’ve managed to miss FOSDEM this year, unfortunately, because I’ve got a beginning sinusitis (this time before the conference) staying home cautiously. But fear not, I’m working on porting the MirKeyboardLayout™ to Windows® 95, and, during that, I noticed that I need another glyph in the documentation comments. Cue FixedMisc.

As usual, download FixedMisc and check the integrity before installing:

  • SHA256 (FixedMisc-20200202.tgz) = 91396414e169b37bc906746ae34188ad360be271865ac44271d9b7d9746c97f1
  • RMD160 (FixedMisc-20200202.tgz) = 8f672de47df8bc67df52f5f48ac49105953d19e9
  • TIGER (FixedMisc-20200202.tgz) = d875a4835c053e21914ead312a6ec9afc40b347ee1d04fa5
  • 3480714773 1275833 /MirOS/dist/mir/Foundry/FixedMisc-20200202.tgz
  • MD5 (FixedMisc-20200202.tgz) = eb494f7f71b2c610346d58e3ac6c46ce

I’ll update my APT repository later. The separate Powerline font has been merged considering we don’t even ship glyphs for “Cirth” in CSUR and it’s being considered for inclusion into the SMP anyway.

Update: The APT repository is updated, and the MirKeyboardLayout for Windows® 95/98/9x (self-extracting LHarc archive) is also done, as far as I can make it anyway: the 102nd key (“<>|”) operates as “…€„™”, as in the NT/2k/XP/… layout, but it produces wrong results (at least on 950 B) if Shift and/or AltGr are pressed, and I couldn’t test AltGr-Tab and AltGr-Shift-Tab ‘“”’ because my window manager caught them before they could be passed into the VM… and since it uses cp1252, I used the florin ‘ƒ’ for AltGr-- instead of U+2010, randomly. The full source is also available. Test results, fixes and improvements welcome. Next: xkb

Update: I’ll be doing a script for customisation of the xmodmap and Linux layout (unswap unshifted Esc and `, move Mode_switch to Alt_R/AltGr keeping Alt on Alt_L and Meta on Win_L, and a tristate one: CapsLock as …€„™ and the <>| (102ⁿᵈ) key as Compose, vs. the 102ⁿᵈ key as …€„™ and CapsLock being either Compose or Ctrl) soon. Stay tuned!
