Description Victor Ashik 2005-08-26 07:23:01 EDT
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):

How reproducible:

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)
7.press spacebar
Actual results:
Word ntcn is underscored, word test is not. Word test in Russian (typed as nctn)
is underscored too.

Expected results:
Only word nctn is underscored.

Additional info:
The same error is in FC4

possible patch

in theory a patch such as this might do the right thing, more exploration
Comment 3 Victor Ashik 2005-08-26 09:48:58 EDT
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.
Comment 4 Victor Ashik 2005-08-26 10:15:58 EDT
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.
Comment 5 Victor Ashik 2005-08-26 10:31:02 EDT
May be I made a mistake and Ubuntu does not have desired feature.
If it does not - I am sorry for misinformation.
