Description Brandon Rioja 2007-01-01 18:01:02 EST
Description of problem:
I am unable to enter a tilde character(˜) with the keyboard.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fc6 with updates.

How reproducible:

Reproduced on two different hardware platforms, don't have confidence
reproducing becsuse, I am unable to go back to a state where I can enter the
tilde character.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Japanese language package in add/remove software.
2. Open up gnome terminal,
3. Try to type a tilde in any application.
Actual results:
sees a backtick, the character on the same key as the tilde. A backtick is typed
with the same key as a tilde but without holding the shift. 

Expected results:
a tilde

Additional info:
fc6 with updates, not using rawhide.

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

Fedora Core 6 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora 7, 8, or
Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know
in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we
will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be
reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional
