I have a beauty of a serial terminal, but it doesn't natively support a Dvorak keymap. Is there a way to remap this with software, or at the kernel level? It's a Wyse WY-185.

  • Is a real full-blown Arch running on the machine? If so, do you have loadkeys? – Arkadiusz Drabczyk Apr 14 '17 at 8:14
  • Yes. It's running Arch, but loadkeys dvorak (or any other keymap, for that matter) does nothing. – gnarly-line Apr 14 '17 at 16:20

That's done (in older systems) using mapchan (see for example Unixware). There are a few imitations of that which are reported to run on Linux, which you may find useful (see this one for instance).
