Description Tamas Malmarits 2000-05-19 06:57:38 UTC
I would like to report a very important outstanding problem to you.
Under the GUI (Xfree86)there are two Hungarian national caracters ( just as
"{[" and "uU" ) which can not be visualized as it should be.
This is an existent mistake since Redhat 6.0 version. Unfortunatly you can
find it in the 3.3.5 version and in the 3.3.6 version as well as in the
latest 4.0 version.
Please find  below the easiest way this mistake can be corrected.


The file has to be changed afterwards ( there are two lines in the script
which has wrong comments)

// key <AD11> { [ odoubleacute, Odoubleacute ],
// [ division ] };
key <AD11> { [ otilde, Otilde ],
[ division ] };

This has to be corrected:

key <AD11> { [ odoubleacute, Odoubleacute ],
[ division ] };
// key <AD11> { [ otilde, Otilde ],
// [ division ] };

The same stands for   "key  <BKSL>"  registration.

All these has to be changed and this problem won't occure again.

With kind regards: Tamas Malmarits

I am not familiar with Hungarian, and do not want to make a judgement
call on wether this is correct or not.  If it is indeed correct, it
should be submitted directly to XFree86 developers upstream and incorporated
directly into XFree86 official.

Please report this upstream to them via email at: xfree86@xfree86.org,
including patch.

My apologies for the delay in processing this.
