macos x11

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I installed Apple’s X11 package on my iBook the other night. It’s nice to have a real xterm again — Terminal.app was seriously, seriously slow when dealing with ncurses- or Slang-based CLI applications — like mutt. It’s sort of annoying that it doesn’t use the same keycodes as the MacOS side, however. I’ve got the MacOS set to use a Dvorak keyboard layout, but the X11 stuff comes up in QWERTY. Guess I need to get some paper and start writing out an .xmodmap file…
