Icelandic keyboard layout wrong in Fedora 7 Test 4 (6.93).
Last modified: 2008-10-15 22:03:28 EDT
Description of problem:
Icelandic keyboard layout is incorrect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Switch to Icelandic keyboard (ISL) and type.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Switch to Icelandic keyboard
The key to the left of the numeral 1 should produce an umlaut/dierisis in the
shift mode. In the above example it is putting this over the '!'. The key just
to the left of the BACKSPACE key appears dead. It should be the '-' and '_'
key. The bottom row seems to be correct.
Not sure this is actually a Gnome Panel bug, but it is certainly a bug.
as mention on list, bug should be 'devel'
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.
If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.
The process we're following is outlined here:
We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
Tested against rawhide live iso 04.04 install
There seems to still be something a miss here at least on Gnome side
these 2 characters differ from Gnome ( ¨ Ä ) and terminal ( " ^ )
And I think the "terminal" got it right ( " ^ ) vs Gnome getting it
wrong.. We don't have or use Ä
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
