Does "Serbian standard xkb keymap" work for you ?

The difference between the two is that "Serb keymap" does "gkb_xmmap
yu" and "standard xkb keymap" does "setxkbmap sr".

Comment 2 Igor Loncarevic 2004-06-01 19:46:02 UTC
"setxkbmap sr" is giving me correct L, but note that standard xkb
keymap is giving Cyrilic Serbian.

In first case it was Latin Serbian version that needs to be fixed.


Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2004-06-02 05:59:53 UTC
In /usr/share/xmodmap/xmodmap.yu, try changing:

keycode  46 = l l Lstroke


keycode  46 = l L Lstroke

Does that fix it ?

Hi Mark,

Yes it does!

This problem is resolved Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. Red Hat does not currently
plan to provide a resolution for this in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 update for
currently deployed systems.

With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in response
to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a conservative approach when
evaluating changes for inclusion in maintenance updates for currently deployed
products. The primary objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware
platform support and to resolve critical defects.
