Can anybody else confirm this problem?
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2004-07-04 05:20:22 EDT
Confirmed.  The keys @&<>' do not work in the shipped fi keymap for
me.  I have already posted a patch that fixes this for me upstream, it
would be very nice to get this applied in RH/FC.
Comment 3 Jarkko 2004-07-05 01:27:59 EDT
Applied the patch. Everyhing seems to be working ok now, but I'm
getting the following warning:

WARNING: No translation for (keysym 0xfe03, ISO_Level3_Shift)
Comment 4 Jarkko 2004-07-05 01:36:46 EDT
Hmm, that warning must have been there already because the patch
contained only additions. 

It might be a good idea though to check out what key should that
(keysym 0xfe03, ISO_Level3_Shift) be so that we get rid of that warning.
Comment 5 Ville Skyttä 2004-07-05 02:42:44 EDT
Actually, the patch removes 5 mappings (ie. those of the keys that did
not work, some of which are duplicated in the original), it does not
add anything.
Comment 6 Jarkko 2004-07-05 02:52:01 EDT
Oh, I was diffing the files wrong way. :)

So I'm not sure if that warning was there before this patch or not. 
Propably it was (if I understand the keymap files correctly).
Comment 7 Ville Skyttä 2004-07-05 12:41:40 EDT
My patch does not affect the ISO_Level3_Shift warning, it was there
already before.  AFAICS it's purely cosmetic, harmless warning, but
nevertheless fixed in upstream CVS:

It would be nice to include that fix as well in FC.
Comment 8 Ville Skyttä 2004-07-05 12:42:43 EDT
(Oh, and ISO_Level3_Shift is AltGr, without the upstream patch a
warning is printed every time it is pressed.)
Comment 9 Jarkko 2004-07-06 02:36:05 EDT
Thanks for that fix. Everything is now working exactly like it should.

So just release a new rpm in updates with these two patches applied
and this bug can be closed. :)

By the way, that second ISO_Level3_Shift patch link says the following
(I had to download the whole file instead): 

RCS file: /cvsroot/rdesktop/rdesktop/keymaps/modifiers,v

Comment 10 Ville Skyttä 2004-07-08 13:37:41 EDT
Yeah, sf.net has the habit of breaking their CVS and/or CVSweb far too
often.  Anyway, the diff link in comment 7 works now; could we get
these fixes in, at least for FC3, even better if also a FC2 erratum? 
That would result in many happy Finns :)
Comment 11 Mark McLoughlin 2004-09-24 11:50:23 EDT
Okay, warren seems to have added this patch. Seems to be in
rdesktop-1.3.1-5 which is in FC3 test2.
