Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 59295
problem with xmodmap files
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:39:45 EDT
Some files (like
do not have mode toggle switch working correctly.
switching (righ control) to russian letters
turns all letters to uppercase and caps_lock does not work.
In the same time mode shift (right "windows" key)
xterm -fn -adobe-courier-medium-r-normal--18-180-75-75-m-110-koi8-r
you will see that russian letters in xterm can be typed
only in uppercase if right control is used for switching modes.
Do you have a patch to fix this behaviour?

I also tried another xmodmap
by "Serge Vakulenko, <email@example.com>, Moscow.",
file cyrillic/yawerty.koi8.xmm which is pretty old (1993) from
It uses CAPS_LOCK as language switch and has exactly the same problem.
I suspect something changed in recent X or may be gnome.
Seems that language switch somehow started interacting with
Also, forgot to write that
to avoid any intercation with Xkb I have
in X server config
Unfortunately without knowing how this stuff should actually be set up,
I can only really make random guesses, and probably make things worse,
so I'm inclined to let someone who does know how it should be set up
provide a patch to XFree86.org, and pick it up from them when I sync.
I recommend reporting this upstream to XFree86.org also on the
firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list to get wider coverage. In the mean time,
I will see if I can try to find some fix online.
[root@asdf root]# rpm -qf /usr/share/xmodmap/xmodmap.ru
Not an X problem.
