Description Jaak Simm 2004-02-23 07:51:59 UTC

Description of problem:
When I log into KDE and launch a KDE program, Alt-gr combination with
other keys does not work, using Estonian keyboard layout. E.g. altgr+2
should give '@' but instead gives just 2.

But AltGr works in gnome programs (tried Gedit). And when I have
launched a gnome program during KDE session Alt-Gr starts to work in
KDE programs as well. Basically, it seems there is an issue with the
configuration of KDE keyboard.

I have encountered the same problem in Fedora Core 1. Also similar
issue has arizen with different machines and different keyboards.

Here are my configurations:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "keyboard"
        Option      "XkbRules" "xfree86"
        Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "us"

# Tried Option "XkbLayout" "ee", "XkbModel" "pc104", but no difference.

In KDE keyboard configuration, I have installed "us" and "ee". The KDE
control panel dislays following command for "ee":
  setxkbmap -model pc104 -layout ee -variant basic
Tried also "nodeadkeys" instead of basic, but nothing changed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always (unless you have already run a gnome program)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add Estonian keyboard in KDE regional settings
2. Change to Estonian keyboard
3. Without running any gnome programs press AltGr+2 in a KDE program
(KDE terminal or editor)

Actual Results:  gives you 2

Expected Results:  should give you @

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

Comment 2 Jaak Simm 2005-04-27 08:33:44 UTC
It can be closed, cause I resolved it by copying some xorg configuration files
to xfree (in fc2 kde still looked for them).

Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2005-04-27 12:20:39 UTC
So in FC3 +, this just works? Assuming the answer is yes :) I'm marking this
