- xkb Xkb description to be updated
XkbGetKeySyms sends a request to the server to obtain the set of
keysyms bound to num keys starting with the key whose keycode is first.
It waits for a reply and returns the keysyms in the map.syms field of
xkb. If successful, XkbGetKeySyms returns Success. The xkb parameter
must be a pointer to a valid Xkb keyboard description.
If the client map in the xkb parameter has not been allocated,
XkbGetKeySyms allocates and initializes it before obtaining the sym-
If a compatible version of Xkb is not available in the server or the

BadAccess. If num is less than 1 or greater than XkbMaxKeyCount,
XkbGetKeySyms returns BadValue. If any allocation errors occur,
XkbGetKeySyms returns BadAlloc.
