fi-latin1 does not seem to have euro (or the like) symbols.
se-latin1 does (the keyboards are identical), so this appears to be an
symptoms on console:
loadkeys se-latin1 and altgr-e produces international currency symbol or
loadkeys fi-latin1 and altgr-e produces a beep
Can the US qwerty keyboard definitions be extended to include a EuroSign compose
combination ? A lot of europeans use US qwerty keyboards and will be grateful to
have € as compose+"e"+"=" and/or compose+"C"+"=".
The workaround compose+"x"+"o" for the $ character is pretty awkward.
The proper key for this on US international keyboards is AltGr-5. I have
just added support to X for euro on this key combo for us_intl. Also
updated is support for gb, hu, pt, tr, and a few others.
