X Windows keyboard map

The X Windows keyboard mod map allows you to type ukrainian characters at the keyboard. Installation is through the xmodmap utility, using the Caps Lock key to toggle the modes. Alternatively, the xrus utility allows users to toggle easily between the default font and the new definition. After installing the utility, type xrus yawerty.koi8u.xmm to try it out.
