Re: micro-emacs on OSX (intel)
- Hi Jon,
Cheers for this!
I will try tomorrow this keyboard, as in fact some of the
keys of my PC keyboard are not working correctly! like the key with |\ is on the bottom, but I have to press the left topmost (under ESC) to get these symbols...
Its a UK (HP) "win" keyboard (PS2 in fact over USB converter)
