Norwegian keyboard in X - problems after installation
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
I installed Pinstripe today. During installation I was asked to chose
keyboard. I didn't do much changes from the suggestions at all, and I tried
@ and ~.
After installation was finished and X started, I found out that @ and other
keys with "alt-gr" didn't work, and not "backspace either".
After running Xconfigurator it was OK!
Xfree86 3.3.6 with Mach64
From XF86Config - Keyboard section (after Xconfigurator):
From XF86Config.save - keyboard section (before Xconfigurator):
Could you verify these please Trond?
This is a duplicate of 16009 (actually, the other way round obviously...) which
has been solved. Works fine now - even dead keys work if you want to.

I have the same problem in final RH7 today. I have chosen norvegian install.
Starting X after installation - backspace and @ is noe working. (KDE). After
Xconfigurator it workes OK. (XFree 3 and 4).
Matrox Millennium G400 Max - this time.
Did you by any chance store the files which made it not work? Did it not work in
both XFree 4 and 3?

Config-file for XFree4
After RH7-final install, X started with XFree3 - where the problem occurred.
After Xconfigurator, the problem was gone, but still XFree3. I wanted Xfree4,
and after Xconfigurator --preferxf4 everything was OK - with XFree4.
So - that means - I did not try XFree4 before Xconfigurator. But I have the
config-files, and I have tried later. Looks like the problem is only with the
XF86Config-file (for XFree3) - not with the XF86Config-4.
