Description Need Real Name 2005-10-24 14:02:39 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050923 Epiphany/1.6.5

Description of problem:
Connecting to a VNC server that uses a German keyboard, from a computer with vncviewer that uses a German keyboard, gives the wrong characters when typing.

This only occurs for special characters.
e.g. what is "-" on my keyboard appears as "§" on the screen.

ssh has no such problem.

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

How reproducible:

And bugzilla has converted the special character (shall I log a bug?)

It should be a "spicy S", i.e. the German character for ss in some words.

Could you please tell me the vnc version you are using?  
What does the "rpm -q vnc" say? 
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2006-02-06 18:11:15 EST
I can no longer reproduce this, however I am now going from rawhide to FC4,
rather than FC4 to FC4.
Comment 4 Jitka Kozana 2006-03-08 05:28:44 EST
I've tried to reproduce the bug with vnc-4.1.1-36, and I can write ß, as well  
as other national characters without any problems.  
If this bug reoccurs, feel free to reopen this bug.
