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:
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):
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.
It can be closed, cause I resolved it by copying some xorg configuration files
to xfree (in fc2 kde still looked for them).
So in FC3 +, this just works? Assuming the answer is yes :) I'm marking this
