Description Jens Lautenbacher 2001-02-26 13:42:44 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17-14 i586)

When using a german (european?) keyboard/keymap/keylayout, the euro sign
should be accessible. This would involve using iso-latin-0 fonts by default
and of course all of these fonts having the euro sign as a glyph.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. press altgr-e	

Actual Results:  no euro sign is shown

I don't know if it's a problem with mainly the fonts or only the default
keymap installed or both. On a related note: when selecting the
de-nodeadkeys keymap in anaconda, the default XF86Config should also use
the nodeadkeys option.

Of course the problem is not only with the bitmapped terminal fonts, but
also the urw fonts I suppose (don't know if those have the euro sign
glayph) or  ther saleable fonts.
