Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 119717
shift + l doesnt produce L when using Serbian keyboard
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:01 EST
Description of problem:
When choosing Serb keymap from gnome-applet Keyboard Layout Switcher
2.2.2 combination of shift + l is not producing big l (L) it stays on
small l (l).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Keyboard Layer Switcher 2.2.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add Serb keymap via Keyboard Layer Switcher gnome-applet
2. Make Serb keymap current keyboard
3. Start typing
The very same problem persists in Red Hat Linux 9 and Fedora Core 1
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".
"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.
In /usr/share/xmodmap/xmodmap.yu, try changing:
keycode 46 = l l Lstroke
keycode 46 = l L Lstroke
Does that fix it ?
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.
