Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 183578
Swedish alt-gr and keys like aring, ouml, auml, pipe... missing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:25 EST
Description of problem:
After the latest upgrade my Swedish keyboard seamed to stop working.
I can no longer type normal characters like aring, auml, ouml and alt-gr
seam to have stopped working too which results in loss of characters like
tilde, pound, square brackets.... Only keys normally found on an US keyboard
seam to work.
I'm using a Thinkpad R50e, with configured with the following in the
following options in the InputDevice section of the xorg.conf:
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "se"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type a non US key
Please attach your X server log and config as uncompressed file attachments
using the link below.
Also, please try using xev, and attaching output of that, and
then use "xkbcomp :0 -xkb out.xkb" and attach out.xkb
The main question - in xev, do you see any codes which would "resemble" somehow
missing letters - or is it outputting absolute nonsense?
Actually, it seam to have been fixed by some yum update lately.
My guess it was, xorg-x11-xkbdata-1.0.1-6
So, unless there are no others that still have problems with this I suggest you
close it as fixed.

But you filed the bug against xorg-x11-xkbdata-1.0.1-7, which is the current
one. Can you clarify that -7 works?
