hilkbd -- HIL keyboard device
hilkbd* at hil?
wskbd* at hilkbd?
This driver supports HIL keyboards within the wscons(4) framework. It doesn't provide
direct device driver entry points, but makes its functions available through the internal
The hilkbd driver supports a number of different key mappings. By default, the layout cor-
responding to the keyboard model as probed by the hilkbd driver will be used. A different
layout can be chosen either with the kernel option ``HILKBD_LAYOUT'' at compile time, or
with the wsconsctl(8) utility (variable: ``keyboard.encoding'') at runtime.
The supported key mappings are at this time:
KB_DE (de) German with ``dead accents''.
KB_FR (fr) French with ``dead accents''.
KB_SV (sv) Swedish.
KB_UK (uk) British.
KB_US (us) English/US keyboard mapping.
The KB_DE mapping can be used in the KB_NODEAD (.nodead) variant. This switches off the
To set a Swedish keyboard mapping, use wsconsctl keyboard.encoding=sv. To set it at kernel
build time, regardless of what keyboard is plugged, add the following to the kernel configu-
hil(4), intro(4), wskbd(4), wsconsctl(8)
The list of built-in mappings is incomplete and has grown as people submitted information
about their particular layout.
The Swedish and British layout have been reconstructed from tables in the old HIL code
present in the hp300 port, and have not been tested.
