XkbIgnoreExtension(3)			  XKB FUNCTIONS 		    XkbIgnoreExtension(3)

NAME
       XkbIgnoreExtension -  Prevents core X library keyboard functions from using the X Keyboard
       Extension

SYNOPSIS
       Bool XkbIgnoreExtension ( ignore )
	     Bool *ignore;

ARGUMENTS
       ignore True means ignore the extension

DESCRIPTION
       If a server supports the Xkb extension, the X library normally implements preXkb  keyboard
       functions  using the Xkb keyboard description and state. The server Xkb keyboard state may
       differ from the preXkb keyboard state. This difference does not affect most  clients,  but
       there are exceptions. To allow these clients to work properly, you may instruct the exten-
       sion not to use Xkb functionality.

       Call XkbIgnoreExtension to prevent core X library keyboard functions from using the X Key-
       board Extension. You must call XkbIgnoreExtension before you open a server connection; Xkb
       does not provide a way to enable or disable use of the  extension  once	a  connection  is
       established.

       XkbIgnoreExtension tells the X library whether to use the X Keyboard Extension on any sub-
       sequently opened X display connections. If ignore is True, the library does not initialize
       the Xkb extension when it opens a new display. This forces the X server to use compatibil-
       ity mode and communicate with the client using only core protocol requests and events.  If
       ignore is False, the library treats subsequent calls to XOpenDisplay normally and uses Xkb
       extension requests, events, and state. Do not explicitly use Xkb on a connection for which
       it  is  disabled.   XkbIgnoreExtension  returns False if it was unable to apply the ignore
       request.

RETURN VALUES
       True	      The XkbIgnoreExtension returns True if

       False	      The XkbIgnoreExtension function returns False if it was unable to apply the
		      ignore request.
