     akbd -- Apple Desktop Bus keyboard driver for wscons

     akbd* at obio?
     wskbd* at akbd? console ?

     options ALTXBUTTONS
     options CAPS_IS_CONTROL

     This driver provides the wscons(4) driver with support for Apple Desktop Bus keyboards.

     To work around the limited number of buttons found on most ADB mice, one can map key
     sequences to trigger mouse button events.	To map Option+1, Option+2, Option+3 to mouse but-
     tons 1, 2, and 3 respectively, add the following line to your kernel configuration file:

     options ALTXBUTTONS

     On macppc systems it is possible to tweak the keyboard driver to treat the caps lock key on
     an ADB keyboard as a control key.	This requires special remapping because of ADB's strange
     emulation of a mechanically-locked key.  To enable this code add the following line to your
     kernel configuration file:

     options CAPS_IS_CONTROL

     On macppc PowerBooks, several function keys double as "hot keys" (brightness, volume, eject)
     when the Fn modifier is held down.  Mac OS X likes to reprogram the keyboard controller to
     send hot key events when Fn is not held down and send function key events when it is.  To
     transform the non-keyboard "button" events back into function key events, place the follow-
     ing line in your kernel configuration file:


     NetBSD is known to support the following ADB keyboards:

	   o   On-board keyboards on PowerBook models

	   o   Apple Standard Keyboard

	   o   Apple Keyboard II

	   o   Apple Extended Keyboard

	   o   Apple Extended Keyboard II

	   o   Apple Adjustable Keyboard

	   o   Most third-party ADB keyboards are supported

     adb(4), wscons(4), wskbd(4), wsconsctl(8)

     The number pad on extended keyboards does not send out the proper key codes for many appli-

     The LEDs on extended keyboards are not functional under NetBSD.
