OpenOffice.org applications do not switch input language with switch of xkb keyboard layout
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:12 EST
Description of problem:
OpenOffice.org applications does not follows xkb at switching of input language.
If I am typing in Russian keyboard layout and OpenOffice is configured to use
Russian by default spell checking is ok, because words are being marked as
Russian. When I switch keyboard layout (using xkb keyboard shortcut) into
English, OpenOffice.org continues to mark words as Russian. I saw more correct
behaviour of OpenOffice build in Ubuntu, which follows current language of xkb
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.setxkbmap us,ru -option grp:shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll
3.turn on AutoSpellCheck (underscored ABC button)
4.type in: test ntcn
5.switch into Russin (press two shifts)
6.type in: ntcn (word "test" in Russian)
Word ntcn is underscored, word test is not. Word test in Russian (typed as nctn)
is underscored too.
Only word nctn is underscored.
The same error is in FC4
Does ubuntu have a custom patch to do this ?
Created attachment 118150 [details]
in theory a patch such as this might do the right thing, more exploration
I just tested Debian 3.1 with their build of OpenOffice - it doesn't have such
feature. So, there should be a patch for Ubuntu.
I tried to reproduce the behaviour in Ubuntu with no success.
Maybe I made something differently previous time.
I'll try to find it out.
May be I made a mistake and Ubuntu does not have desired feature.
If it does not - I am sorry for misinformation.
