Description of problem:
I am using an updated version of Fedora 25. If I login to system with wayland, the special characters of Turkish (ı İ Ğ Ü ü ğ ) and Alt_Gr button does not work.
This bug is filed under https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1389968 but there is no updates.
I searched this bug in upstream and found that this bug was also filled in gnome and closed by mutter developers with RESOLVED NOTGNOME flag.
Gnome adress that this problem related to libxkbcommon in their bugzilla. libxkbcommon upstream also filed an issue related this problem
It seems that this commit solves problem and as far as I see there is no stable release which includes this patch.
Could you kindly include this patch in libxkbcommon package if this is "the solution"
Thanks for your effort.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set keyboard map to Turkish Q
2. Reboot system and login with Wayland
3. Try to type Turkish special characters ı İ and try to type other characters with Alt_Gr button like @ $ ¾
I can not type this characters if I login with Wayland
Keyboard must work without a problem
