Description Peter Åstrand 2006-05-15 11:05:56 EDT
The X11 ABNT2 keyboard layout is not quite correct. Two keys are wrong:

* Key 42[*] (keycode 51, the third key to the right of L) should generate
bracketright/braceright/ordfeminine, but currently generates backslash/bar. 

* Key 45[*] (keycode 94, the key to the left of Z) should generate
backslash/bar, but currently generates less/greater/bar. 

[*]: As defined by the MS Keyboard Scan Code Specification. 

xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.0.1-9.fc5.1.1 and have installed all FC5 updates as of

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start GNOME
2. Start Preferences->Keyboard->Layouts. 
3. Select the Brazil ABNT2 model and the Brazil layout. 
One additional strangeness is that when using the Keyboard Layout Applet and
selecting Layout View, it shows the correct symbols for these keys. Thus, the
displayed layout does not match the actual layout.

Is this bug really fixed? https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7069 is
still NEW. 

If the bug *is* fixed, I'd like some information in which version/revision the
bug was fixed.
