Description of problem:
The "fi" keymap does not work properly. For example I can't get "&" at
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. choose the "fi" keymap
2. connect to some Windows server
3. try to push "&"
Actual Results: Nothing happens.
Expected Results: The key should print "&" on the screen as normally.
Can anybody else confirm this problem?
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.
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)
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.
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
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).
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.
(Oh, and ISO_Level3_Shift is AltGr, without the upstream patch a
warning is printed every time it is pressed.)
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

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 :)
Okay, warren seems to have added this patch. Seems to be in
rdesktop-1.3.1-5 which is in FC3 test2.
