FYI, KBD_TABLE is currently broken on GoldCard and will be fixed in the upcoming SMSQ/E.

The defaults can be overridden by entering the KBD_TABLE and LAN_USE command in the boot file:

10 LANG_USE "D"
20 KBD_TABLE "D"

In the Q68, I have the theses commands in the first lines of lines of the boot file, as 'GB', as I can only speak English...

If QPC2 is being used, the keyboard type has to chnaged to SMSQE rather than Windows ( also works in Wine )


On the real thing with SGC & QL-SD LANG_USE did, KBD_TABLE didn´t work - I´ve used menuconfig finally to change the default layout in the binary.

That's good then as KBD_TABLE is imho the easier and documented way.

Thanks to all & stay safe

Great!

BTW, could other keyboard tables of new languages be integrated natively into SMSQe? (Spanish for example).

I have attached the files to configure the SMSQe keyboard and message tables in Spanish (es).

In my Q68, the keyboard configuration works perfectly with "LRESPR eskbdpc.rext" and "KBD_TABLE 34" commands. The problem is in SMSQE GoldCard version. In my BBQL, eskbdql.rext it should work but it doesn't.

I have few skills in system programming ... :oops: , but I can be a "betatester" if you need it ... :) .

Hi,

Why not make the SMSQ/E Language support file modular, so that they can be loaded at boot time or configured


Regards,

Derek

Thanks. It was a bit of work to translate this into assembler, but the result might be contained in 3.36. 3.37 at the latest.
In my BBQL, eskbdql.rext it should work but it doesn't.
Same bug as above, will be fixed in 3.36.

I could only provide a beta for QPC/GoldCard, for Q68 you'd need to contact Wolfgang.

Cheers, Marcel

Marcel. I join the appreciation of AFX. Thank you very much for the work done, and the possibility of using the operating system in Spanish.

Estaba de vacaciones en Rosas en los años 80 y vi la v Vuelta Ciclista a España 1983 allí. "Me estoy volviendo loco" :)
