more info
- font has glyph for it (you can input in gedit)
- gucharmap is not showing any information (attached #2)
Comment 4 A S Alam 2011-08-01 23:43:35 EDT
this issue also exist for RHEL 5.7 build (xkeyboard-config-0.8.10)
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2011-08-02 05:54:14 EDT
Moving to glib2 for now since this seems to affect both
gnome-keyboard-properties and gucharmap.
Comment 6 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-08-02 06:08:39 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support
representative.
Comment 7 Jens Petersen 2011-08-08 01:03:35 EDT
I guess it would be nice to verify if backport newer unicode data
from later glib2 fixes this issue.
Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2011-12-07 16:19:38 EST
It won't. gucharmap ships with its own copy of the unicode data.
Comment 9 Matthias Clasen 2011-12-15 10:41:21 EST
Moving this back to gucharmap.
Comment 11 Jens Petersen 2012-02-09 21:02:58 EST
I think another bug needs to be cloned for xkeyboard-config.
