Description of problem:
All Canadian keyboards are broken in GNOME. Normally, you can create accented characters by first typing the accent, then the letter. Now, the console beeps and nothing shows up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 10 testing updates
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a GTK application
2. Write an accented character using deadkeys
(nothing and the system speaker beeps)
Last evning I updatede form F10 test update.
After that IS ( iclandic ) keyboard was no longer defult.
( gnome-keybond probetys). Dead keys ane not working ( áé ).
Node in gnome or KDE. No applicatinon.
Efven afret resting keyboard and rebooting.
Could we get /var/log/Xorg.0.log attached to this bug as well, please?
does running setxkbmap -layout "ca(fr)" work? Is the layout only set in your xorg.conf, or is it set in the desktop environment (e.g. gnome)?
do you have xkeyboard-config 1.4 or higher?
note that in the default setup, the devices using driver "kbd" in the xorg.conf are ignored. you have to modify either /etc/sysconfig/keyboard (for global settings) or /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-x11-input.fdi (X only settings).
Here's an example file that includes the "us" layout, adjust as required.
Note that your desktop environment will overwrite any changes in either sysconfig or x11-input.fdi.
Are you using SCIM ? I had the same issue with GTK_IM_MODULE=xim, and setting GTK_IM_MODULE to either scim or scim-bridge did the trick for me. Try to run for instance :
I'm experiencing a similar problem with Spanish layout keyboard: dead keys don't work, so I can't 'á', 'é', 'í', 'ó' ... when I run any WINE application, GoogleEarth or Skype.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
