Use gist so people can fork!
Haha, good point!
Thanks for this. I finally got my tracking number and will be VIMing shortly.
Definitely. I live in New York and the package got to me surprisingly quick from Vancouver. They did a stand up job with the packaging and the build quality is immediately noticeable. However, I'm curious why they couldn't take the extra step of actually printing the quick start guide they have online to go along with the 3 identical copies of the invoice I received...
Thanks for starting this thread. Keep us up-to-date with how you progress. I just got mine today and since the machine on which I'm using it doesn't have Windows I will be mucking around with xmodmap quite a bit once I get a chance to play around with it.
BTW, which TECK did you get? 104/105/109? Which switches?
Nice. Please share your xmodmap configs here when you have the chance! I've yet to have enough time to try this thing on my other systems (I also have a Debian laptop and a Mac).
To answer your question: I got the 104 with MX Browns. I wish I put some more forethought into this though...
For one, I should've gotten it blank since I will be remapping quite a few keys and it irks me to see a printed key not reflect the reality of its function. Secondly, the 109 offers far more options to map things to.
So far, the remapping I created in the original post has been making it easier to acclimate to this keyboard from a standard keyboard. I want to avoid the mistake of trying to force the TECK to be more like a normal keyboard layout and cancel out any ergonomic benefit from the default TECK layout. While the default seems almost fine for normal typing, some of their choices really blow away years of code monkey muscle memory...
