Description of problem:
The /etc/sysconfig/i18n on my System looks like this:
If I open a xterm I can't input the eurosign (€) with the
shortcut [AltGr] + [E].
The same problem is present in the console (e.g. in Runlevel 3).
If I start a konsole (KDE) or gnome-terminal the aforementioned
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set your /etc/sysconfig/i18n or ~/.i18n as aforementioned
2. start a xterm
3. enter the shortcut [AltGr] + [E]
Actual Results: The xterm returns a space character.
Expected Results: The xterm should return the eurosign (ï¿½).
I've fixed the problem for me, after I've added the following two
lines to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/XTerm:
The font you were using did not contain the Euro symbol obviously.
The solution to that is to choose a font that does have the Euro
symbol of course, which is what your solution seems to have been.
This isn't a bug.
