Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 190171
vino (or vnc?) incompatible with keymaps
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:45:33 EST
Description of problem:
I use an xmodmap to remap my keyboard to a dvorak layout with accents, same
xmodmap on both client and server, both FC5.
When I connect from one system to the other, any text that I type gets totally
jumbled up, as if the keymap was "rotated another time". This makes connecting
to another host over vnc totally useless.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
vino-2.13.5-2.2 on both client and server
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use an xmodmap to get a dvorak keymap on client and server (azerty might work
too for testing)
2. log into one system from the other using vnc
3. typing gets all jumbled up
When I type a particular letter, it just shows up on the other side.
When I specified a dvorak layout in /etc/X11/xorg.conf things did not get as
jumbled, I only lost about half of the capital letters but all small letters
just worked. Now that I rely on just the gnome keymap thing for my dvorak
layout things are totally horked.
