man: Redirect users from XKeycodeToKeysym to XkbKeycodeToKeysym #25732
XKeycodeToKeysym keeps compatibility with pre-XKB and thus only sees 2 groups with 2 levels each. It wraps the index into the next group. This behavior confuses the unaware user, and therefore this will add a reference to XkbKeycodeToKeysym in the corresponding man paragraph. Another bug had that issue, too. #5349 Signed-off-by: Dirk Wallenstein <> Signed-off-by: Alan Coopersmith <>
