The R6 Xsun supports Sun Type-[45] keyboards; see the KEYBOARDS section of
the Xsun man page.

Many users wants the Num Lock key to light the Num Lock LED and have the
appropriate effect on the numeric keypad.  The R5 Xsun server as distributed
by the Consortium doesn't do this but there are two different patches
available.

The first patch is written by Jonathan Lemon and fixes the Num Lock related
problems. It is available from ftp.x.org in the file
R5contrib/Xsun-R5.numlock_patch.Z .

The second is written by Martin Forssen and fixes the Num Lock and Compose
keys and adds support for the different national keyboard layouts for Type-4
and Type-5 keyboards. This patch is available from ftp.x.org in
R5contrib/sunkbd.930314.tar.Z or via email from maf@dtek.chalmers.se.

[thanks to Martin Forssen (maf@dtek.chalmers.se or maf@math.chalmers.se),
8/92]

(Note that use of xmodmap to map function and arrow keys can make the Type 5
keyboard more useful without needing these patches.)
