Description Paul Bolle 2003-05-26 09:09:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1; Linux) 
Description of problem: 
In Red Hat Linux 9 it doesn't seem to be possible to write a € (euro) by simply typing 'Alt Gr + 
5' (which is a very common combination over here in Europe). In Red Hat Linux 8.0 that was 
possible. In both cases LANG was set to en_US.UTF-8. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Type 'Alt Gr + 5' 
Actual Results:  No € (euro) appeared, but a 5. 
Expected Results:  A € (euro) should appear. 
Additional info: 
FWIW my workaround. To /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/us_intl I added these lines: 
     key <AE05> {   [     5,   percent      ],  
          [   EuroSign         ]   }; 
Besides, to  /etc/X11/XF86Config I added the line: 
   Option   "XkbOptions"   "grp:switch" 
I'm not sure whether this is only possible solution, whether editing /etc/X11/XF86Config was 
really necessary and whether there isn't a better way to do this, but: this worked for me!

Please report this problem in XFree86 bugzilla at http://bugs.xfree86.org
and post the upstream bug URL here and I will track it there and once approved
by XFree86 and checked into CVS, I will backport the fix to future Red Hat
XFree86 packages.

Ivan Pascal of Xfree86 seems to have fixed this already!
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2003-05-31 02:01:44 EDT
Thanks, I'll investigate including this in rawhide soon.
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2003-08-16 10:51:49 EDT
Backported patch applied to 4.3.0-19 in rawhide.  Changing bug status to
MODIFIED, pending end user testing.  If this works now, please change bug
status to RAWHIDE, otherwise change it back to ASSIGNED.
