Hello,

I've changed a line in the Spanish keymap so as to write tildes '~'.
Although there is not a "tilde key" in Spanish keyboards, in every
other OS this mapping (Alt Gr + 4) gives you a tilde character. Can
some of the committers approve and apply this patch to
"/src/drivers/tty/keymaps/spanish.src" ?

Yes, but also in "every other OS" this key acts as a dead key, ie
pressing AltGr+4 then N gives you la Ñ (Ñ, very important for
Spanish where it even have a proper key along L).
However with Minix there are no dead keys right now, perhaps this is the
reason?

While I was looking at your patch, I noticed that not all the Ctrl
characters where available with the Spanish keymap: beyond ^A-^Z, we do
have ^@ (NUL) at Ctrl+2 (plus many non-standard aliases), ^[ (ESC) as
Ctrl+` and ^] (GS) as Ctrl++ (same keys as AltGr give [ and ]), and ^_
(US) as Ctrl+'. Missing are ^^ (RS), which is placed in "every other OS"
at Ctrl+6, and ^\ (FS) which is placed at Ctrl+< (the 102th/105th key,
lacking on US keyboards but present on every other ones.)
The attached patch makes the relevant changes, so I propose it for the
same application as Rafael. I have used a major length, in the hope that
patch will succeed even in fuzzy mode.
