Change divided spacebar key mode of Compaq keyboard
I've come across an old Compaq keyboard with this `Erase-Eaze Split Spacebar Feature'. Which means the spacebar is split in two, and the left half of the divided spacebar functions as a backspace key.
How can I reconfigure the spacebar so that each half of the spacebar functions as a traditional spacebar?
- Linux (Debian 4.0)
- Compaq numbers:
- international: 247430-B31
- spare part number: 247432-B31
Table 1: Erase-Eaze Key Modes
"To program the Erase-Eaze key for use in other modes, press and hold the Alt+Ctrl+Shift keys on the left side of the keyboard. Then press the left-half of the divided spacebar to cycle through the following modes:
Left-Half of Right-Half of Mode Divided Spacebar Divided Spacebar ----------- ---------------- ---------------- A (default) Backspace Forward space B Forward space Backspace C Forward space Forward space"
Fortunately the setting remains when the computer is restarted.
