Description Moritz Barsnick 2002-09-02 16:11:40 UTC
Description of Problem: When using a keymap which includes "compose.latin1", some compose combinations don't work, such as 'a"' (all vowels). Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kbd-1.06-23 How Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. loadkeys de-latin-nodeadkeys.map 2. Type the selected compose key (Alt+AltGr), then 'a', then '"' Actual Results: Console shows 'a"' Expected Results: Console shows 'd' (a-Umlaut) Additional Information: In many X11 compose keymaps, the order of the composed characters is irrelevant, i.e. 'a"' is equivilant to '"a' (and even more common to use). kbd supportst he latter, but not the former. Compare /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/iso8859-1/Compose .
Comment 1 Eido Inoue 2003-01-06 02:51:29 UTC
so your bug is that compose only accepts one combination, and you want both combinations to be accepted?
Comment 2 Moritz Barsnick 2003-01-13 11:13:18 UTC
Indeed, I expect the same behavior as under X11, as this is where this method is derived from (as far as I'm aware), and many people are used to those key combinations. Perhaps an automatic conversion / adaptation from usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/iso8859-1/Compose may be possible. Thanks, Moritz

non-ASCII input into the console won't be supported on UTF-8 based systems (RHL 8+) until the kernel supports it. See the release notes in the next beta for more info. Of course, input through X will always be supported.
