At yesterday’s announcement of the new MacBook Pro, I had a “finally!” moment when I read that the right Enter key was deprecated in favor of another Option (ALT) key on the right side of the keyboard.
If you’re a keyboard freak as I am, you have probably cursed Apple for this missing feature.
Well… it seems that you’re now able to shell some cash out and get a new laptop and throw away the one you bought 9 days ago.
Mine is from last august and this is just a tease to whoever bought one last week :D
A bit happy for the newcomers and a bit disappointed for myself, I started wondering whether there’s some utility out there that can do the same.
Well… I stubled upon this great japanese dude who programmed one for his own usage (Emacs etc) and made it available to the public.
Greet KeyRemap4Macbook, everyone.
The utility is confirmed to work on MacBook/MacBook Pro and Mac Mini (not sure which) and is Universal Binary.
I can confirm it works on my MBP 2.4
Personal usage scenario:
having Spaces remapped to ALT rather than CTRL, having a right ALT key makes me super happy (and will soon give me RSI)
