Hi All,

I have cross Compiled the Multitap pad [multitap-pad_svn.o-hand.com_.repos.misc.trunk_373_.tar.gz]  for Arm Target ..
and my etc/gtk-2.0/im-multipress.conf[keys] contains the following key mappings ..

KP_0 = +;=;/;\\
KP_1 = .;,;/;-;?;!;@;:;(;)
KP_2 = a;b;c;2
KP_3 = d;e;f;3
KP_4 = g;h;i;4
KP_5 = j;k;l;5
KP_6 = m;n;o;6
KP_7 = p;q;r;s;7
KP_8 = t;u;v;8
KP_9 = w;x;y;z;9
KP_10 = A;B;C;2
KP_11 = D;E;F;3
KP_12 = G;H;I;4
KP_13 = J;K;L;5
KP_14 = M;N;O;6
KP_15 = P;Q;R;S;7
KP_16 = T;U;V;8
KP_17 = W;X;Y;Z;9

Xmodmap is done as shown below...

xmodmap -e "keycode 49 = Shift_L"
xmodmap -e "add shift =  Shift_L"

xmodmap -e "keycode 61 = Shift_R"
xmodmap -e "add shift =  Shift_R"

xmodmap -e "keycode 114 = Menu"
xmodmap -e "add shift =  Menu"

xmodmap -e "keycode 65 = Caps_Lock"
xmodmap -e "add lock   = Caps_Lock"

xmodmap -e "keycode 36  = Control_L"
xmodmap -e "add control = Control_L"
xmodmap -e "keycode 96  =  Control_R"
xmodmap -e "add control =  Control_R"

xmodmap -e "keycode 63  =  Alt_L"
xmodmap -e "add mod1    =  Alt_L"
xmodmap -e "keycode 100  =  Alt_R"
xmodmap -e "add mod1    =  Alt_R"

xmodmap -e "keycode 101  = Num_Lock"
xmodmap -e "add mod2    =  Num_Lock"

xmodmap -e "keycode 112  = Super_L"
xmodmap -e "add mod3    =  Super_L"
xmodmap -e "keycode 113  = Super_R"
xmodmap -e "add mod3    =  Super_R"

The problem is when i enable the caps lock on the multitap pad & try to press the keys CAPITAL Keys are entered in the text edit box but at rare time it displays the small charaters in the text box..
so please tell me whether is a bug in the multitap pad Source package or the way i am doing is wrong ...

Thanks & Regards
