XkbIgnoreExtension(3)            XKB FUNCTIONS           XkbIgnoreExtension(3)



NAME
       XkbIgnoreExtension  -   Prevents core X library keyboard functions from
       using the X Keyboard Extension

SYNOPSIS
       Bool XkbIgnoreExtension ( ignore )
             Bool *ignore;

ARGUMENTS
       ignore True means ignore the extension

DESCRIPTION
       If a server supports the Xkb extension, the X library  normally  imple-
       ments  preXkb keyboard functions using the Xkb keyboard description and
       state. The server Xkb keyboard state may differ from  the  preXkb  key-
       board  state.  This  difference does not affect most clients, but there
       are exceptions. To allow  these  clients  to  work  properly,  you  may
       instruct the extension not to use Xkb functionality.

       Call  XkbIgnoreExtension  to  prevent core X library keyboard functions
       from using the X Keyboard Extension. You must  call  XkbIgnoreExtension
       before  you  open  a  server  connection; Xkb does not provide a way to
       enable or disable use of the extension  once  a  connection  is  estab-
       lished.

       XkbIgnoreExtension  tells  the  X library whether to use the X Keyboard
       Extension on any subsequently opened X display connections.  If  ignore
       is  True,  the  library  does  not initialize the Xkb extension when it
       opens a new display. This forces the X server to use compatibility mode
       and  communicate  with the client using only core protocol requests and
       events. If ignore is False, the  library  treats  subsequent  calls  to
       XOpenDisplay  normally  and  uses  Xkb  extension requests, events, and
       state. Do not explicitly use Xkb on a connection for which it  is  dis-
       abled.   XkbIgnoreExtension returns False if it was unable to apply the
       ignore request.

RETURN VALUES
       True           The XkbIgnoreExtension returns True if

       False          The XkbIgnoreExtension function returns False if it  was
                      unable to apply the ignore request.
