Description Mark Polo 2004-11-22 05:58:12 EST
Description of problem:
After installing unitle, I can get European dead keys to work
perfectly in GTK-aware apps, including Mozilla. However, in the
terminal, or in wine applications, not only does the im window not
come up (the applet shows a blank method), the dead keys still don't
work. The ideal (at least for me) would be that in "blank mode" gimlet
doesn't do anything to the dead keys, allowing the normal input to

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a terminal or other non-GTK app.
2. Hit a dead key followed by a letter
Actual results:
Only the letter appears

Expected results:
Letter appears with accent

Actually, things do seem to work in a terminal... The problem is that
gimlet defaults to "default" and not to "unitle". It would be nice to
be able to set this...

Well, you mean a dead key works with/without activating LE when you switched to
UNIT, right? and what locale are you using?
Comment 3 Akira TAGOH 2005-07-25 03:28:15 EDT
Well, sorry, how does XKB works on X applications for you? when I tried the dead
key stuff on kedit with XMODIFIERS=@im=none say -- I did setxkbmap -layout de --
and when I press Alt_R + @ on my Japanese keyboard, it shows a diaeresis
immediately, and even if I press an 'a' after that, it just shows an 'a', but
not an ä. am I missing something else to use the dead key?
