Description Need Real Name 2000-10-27 08:15:12 EDT
If I'm using the perl Majormode for emacs, I can't write ^ and ~.
Comment 1 Need Real Name 2000-10-27 08:18:50 EDT
Sorry, I forget to say that I've added
emacs*font: fixed
to ~/.Xdefaults.
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-10-29 22:43:51 EST
Try using space after entering one of those - you're probably just using dead keys.
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2000-11-03 06:07:24 EST
No, I have thought of that.

Emacs gives me a (visual) bell every time I
hit those keys.
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-12-04 17:45:38 EST
It works fine for me... are you able to write it in other modes? Tried unsetting
your locale?
Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-12-14 11:25:19 EST
Have you had the time to try the suggestions I made?
Comment 6 Need Real Name 2000-12-15 03:18:14 EST
$LANG = en_US
Keyboard Layout: de

I haven't set any additionial locale evnironment.

In the meantime I'm using xemacs, which doesn't have
that problem.  :-)
Comment 7 Matt Wilson 2000-12-26 18:21:07 EST
emacs in an x-terminal does not work with dead keys, but pressing the dead key
twice should work properly.  Run:
"setxkbmap -v 9 de" and send the output.
Comment 8 Ngo Than 2000-12-28 09:22:51 EST
you should set XkbVariant to nodeadkeys in /etc/X11/XF86Config. It fixes this

   XkbVariant      "nodeadkeys"
Comment 9 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-01-08 14:46:59 EST
Reassigning to XFree - this isn't a XFree problem.
