Cacko 1.21+ has KeyHelper functionality merged with Cyrillica keyboard layout applet. See
cyrkbdset. Also see
Keyhelper: These are nice, but don't apply to the newer Cacko at least for the problems I was trying to solve.:
khctl disable khctl enable
Internal keyboard ∞
, swap ∞
This is important for certain applications, like Frodo on Cacko.
[keyboard] ',' ',' '/' '/' ',' ','
[keyboard] #',' ',' '/' #'/' ',' ','
Then run 'cyrkbdset' and exit it.
Make the change as above, but save a new file 'english-noswap'
english-noswap and add it. Then exit the program.
At the bottom-right you will see a flag. Click it to change to the other layout. The change is immediate, even in consoles.

2006-09-20 -- My Zaurus SL-C1000 has a new USB host cable. It's annoying to get the right kind. USB cables come in several standards, and the two mini connectors are the A and B.. except as I understand it there is more than one kind of A cable, the kind I need. Sharp decided on its own "standard". Well, I picked one up and played around.
Tested with the Zaurus SL-C1000:
Connected via a host cable bought from eBay.
Most keys work just like the keyboard on the Zaurus itself.
