Description of problem:
The french keyboard support and mapping does not correspond to the keyboards in use in Canada. The correct keyboard support is available in Core4, initial and current level of code.
The Core4 keyboard works with kde, gnome and terminal mode.
The Core5 keyboard does not work, and forces me to plug in a temporary keyboard in order to write this bug report
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose French Multilingual for Canada on Core5 install
Actual Results: Wrong keyboard mapping takes place, critical characters, such as at symbol are not available.
Expected Results: Should work as the keyboard interface does no Core4.
With the patches received between the initial open of this bug and today, we
have a major improvement
a) With command line mode: Mapping is 100%
b) With KDE : Mapping is 100%
c) With Gnome : Mapping is 100%
d) With Gnome terminal : Mapping is 100%
e) With KDE terminal : Mapping is 100%
f) With KDE SUPERTERMINAL: MAPPING IS -30% NO KNOWN TERMINAL DEFINITION
g) With Evolution : Mapping is 100%
h) With Firefox : Mapping is 99% (ALT-CHAR E) does not produce Euro
i) With Evolution : Mapping is 99% (ALT-CHAR E) does not generate Euro
Keyboard id Microsoft Internet 105key, X11 setup (From patches is "French
Canada" AT TRANSLATED 2 SET KEYBOARD
KDE SUPERTERMINAL IS A PROBLEM, as is the Euro Symbol. But it is not a show
stopper. (I will not use Euro Symbol, or SuperTerminal)
March 12, 2006
Superterminal is now 99% after reboot after applying patches.
Only character missing is the Euro, as alt-char E
With Core5 Release, the Canadian French Keyboard is supported.
Thank you developers.
