Description alfred hochwarder 2000-04-14 02:41:54 UTC
In the standard XF86Config file, the following text appears:

    #To set the LeftAlt to Meta, RightAlt key to ModeShift,
    #RightCtl key to Compose, and ScrollLock key to ModeLock:

    LeftAlt        Meta
    RightAlt       Meta
   ScrollLock      Compose
   RightCtl        Control

Instead, I believe it should have
    RightAlt       ModeShift (as in the comment)

This causes problems with my Portuguese keyboard (cannot type @#'{[]} etc.)

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-12 15:22:53 UTC
Are you sure? The above works with my Norwegian keyboard, which also uses the
right alt (altgr) to type those characters.

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-08 18:44:20 UTC
Is this still a problem? Can you try running Xconfigurator and see if this is a
problem? It works with Norwegian and German keyboards right now, which also have
AltGr keys...

Tested with German and Norwegian keyboard - this works for pinstripe+.
