Description Flavio Ribeiro 2002-02-09 12:57:36 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020204

Description of problem:
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/us_intl lacks some commas after certain ']'
characters, making it unreadable. Just add the commas and you'll fix it.

this file holds dead key support for people who want to write latin characters
with standard 101 key US keyboards.

Note that this particular problem may be present in other symbol files (I
haven't checked). I haven't checked any other architectures either, but they
should also have the bug.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.2.0-6.24

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
use Option "XkbLayout"  "us_intl" in your XF86Config file or run
setxkbmap -symbols "us(pc101)+us_intl"

Actual Results:  dead key support doesn't exist, because us_intl is ignored

Additional info: I've submitted this bug to XFree86.org, so we should expect it
to be fixed on their next minor release.
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-02-09 14:46:10 EST
Commas added to XFree86-4.2.0-6.31 in rawhide.

Thanks very much for the report and info.
