Dead keys not working for KDE apps when language is set to Norwegian(Nynorsk) (nn_NO)
Last modified: 2018-04-11 02:51:55 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Norwegian(Nynorsk) before logging in
2. Start any KDE app and try to use dead key accents (`~"^...)
The dead key is undead. The accent appears immediately.
Dead keys should work as they do in other locales (wait for next keypress and
output an accented character)
It's probably related to a missing entry for nn_NO.UTF-8 in
Just adding it to the file doesn't seem to help. Must some KDE package be
recompiled to fix it?
By the way... The dead keys work as expected in gnome apps. The problem only
exists in KDE apps. Both when run in KDE and in gnome.
And I found out why the fix didn't work. There are 2 sets of entries in that
file. One with : after the first word, and one without.
Now I have inserted the following 2 lines into the file
And now dead keys are dead again.
No need to rebuild anything, just have the libX11 package fixed.
Reporter seems to provide fix for this bug (missing configuration file for xkb).
