Description João Paulo Braga e Souza 2004-09-30 18:39:13 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)
Gecko/20040922

Description of problem:
The � and � characters cannot be typed in Openoffice.org while using
"abnt2" model keyboard and "br" layout. Instead showing the character
pressed, UTF-8 codes are show (ç).

The /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/en_US.UTF8/Compose file should be
patched to fix this problem:

[joaosouza@mec-35-005 en_US.UTF-8]$ pwd
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8
[joaosouza@mec-35-005 en_US.UTF-8]$ diff Compose Compose.ori
477d476
< <Ccedilla>            : "�" U00C7 # LATIN CAPITAL LETTER C WITH CEDILLA
555d553
< <ccedilla>            : "�" U00E7 # LATIN SMALL LETTER C WITH CEDILLA
[joaosouza@mec-35-005 en_US.UTF-8]$


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-libs-data-6.7.0-9

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use an ABNT2 Brazilian keyboard
2. Open new document in OpenOffice.org
3. Type "�" key
    

Actual Results:  The UTF-8 code "ç" was shown instead of the expected
character "�"

Expected Results:  The "�" character had to be shown.

Additional info:

The /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/en_US.UTF8/Compose file should be
patched to fix this problem. Diff results:

477d476
< <Ccedilla>            : "�" U00C7 # LATIN CAPITAL LETTER C WITH CEDILLA
555d553
< <ccedilla>            : "�" U00E7 # LATIN SMALL LETTER C WITH CEDILLA

Comment 1 João Paulo Braga e Souza 2004-09-30 18:51:20 UTC
Unfortunatelly my browser inverted the characters, ill try to explain.

Wrong character shown is and UTF-8 code: <tilde> + <A> + <section char>

The right character do be shown is: <cedilla> + <c>

The diff i sent was made from the edited Compose file and the backup
Compose.ori file.
