Description of problem:
If I am in bash, I cannot enter in a quote (single or double) that the system
will interpret as a quote mark. The first time I enter a quote, nothing
happens. If I hit another quote, I get that quote mark. If I hit another
character, i get an accented character. This occurs when I am running vi and/or
pico as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter a quote in bash. Nothing happens.
2. Enter a quote again. Get a quote.
3. Run the php script or web pages I am working on and watch it cvomplain about
the bogus quote marks.
Actual Results: I get an invalid quote mark.
Expected Results: I should have gotten a valid quote mark. (Or actually two of
them if I hit the key twice.)
Found what caused this. Not certain if it was my fault or Redhat's installer.
In /etc/X11/XF86Config, "XkbLayout" was set to "us_intl" instead of "us".
Fixing that solved the problem.
If other people report this, then it is a bug. If not, then it is not a bug.
