Description Frank Laurijssens 2000-05-01 10:59:14 EDT
The Dutch keyboard layout (nl) is far from perfect. Many keys, like braces
and brackets don't work or are not in place. It's a real pain when editing
LaTeX files.

IBM is the only manufacturer that ships PCs with Dutch keyboards, so it
will not affect many Linux users. It still is irritating, though.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-05-05 09:58:59 EDT
Where should the brackets etc. be located for your keyboard?
The keymap we provide for Dutch was made for an IBM 85 key international
keyboard, probably not exactly a standard one.

Comment 4 Frank Laurijssens 2000-05-09 04:34:59 EDT
I have attached the two kmap files that I made yesterday. They appear to be
working correctly.

The equivalent X files need to be changed as well.
Comment 5 Frank Laurijssens 2000-05-16 03:26:59 EDT
Hmm.... I obviously messed up the description fields with the attachments. The
attachment names themselves are correct.
Comment 6 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-08-08 08:26:46 EDT
Please re-attach the files, they aren't in any valid format. (They aren't valid
gzip or bzip2, and they aren't uncompressed).

Comment 9 Frank Laurijssens 2000-09-01 03:52:09 EDT
I have tested these files before I uploaded them... hope they do work this time.
Comment 10 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-09-01 04:32:07 EDT
Thanks, they're in console-tools-19990829-27.
Unfortunately, it's a couple of days too late to make it into
the 7.0 release (feature freeze).
