X(NumLock)=Mod2 (was Re: Profiler for Mathematica)
> PS: One more quick one: Why does the front end act funny when I have the > num lock turned on on Linux? (Linux,Athlon, KDE) Your X server is set up so that the NumLock key is mapped to Mod2. I learned by accident that Mod2 is actually quite useful. Mod2-click on a cell selects all cells of that type in the current notebook. This is an easy way to delete all the graphics cells and output cells in a notebook to reduce file size. An annoying aspect is that Mod2-click means press NumLock, click, then press NumLock again to turn it off. You should be able to map a different key to Mod2 using xmodmap. Remapping modifier keys in X is awfully annoying, though. I recommend xkeycaps (http://www.jwz.org/xkeycaps/).
