Configuring keymaps for PC keyboards
You are able to use standard PC keyboards on Vampire boards that have a USB port. (See also Vampire-compatible USB input devices.) The USB keyboard signals are translated to classic Amiga keyboard signals at the hardware level.
With the standard keymap files under
DEVS:Keymaps/, AmigaOS supports many different Amiga keyboard layouts. If you have a PC keyboard with a US layout (typically 104 keys), then the standard US keymap file works well. If you have a PC keyboard with an international layout (typically 105 keys), then the standard international keymap files might not provide support for some special characters.
To fix this problem, download and install the latest SAGA Drivers. It will install keymap files that support special characters on PC keyboards with international layouts.
Note: If you have connected an original Amiga keyboard using a
Keyrah V2b, then the standard keymap files in AmigaOS should work fine.
