- font has glyph for it (you can input in gedit)
- gucharmap is not showing any information (attached #2)
this issue also exist for RHEL 5.7 build (xkeyboard-config-0.8.10)
Moving to glib2 for now since this seems to affect both
gnome-keyboard-properties and gucharmap.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support
I guess it would be nice to verify if backport newer unicode data
from later glib2 fixes this issue.
It won't. gucharmap ships with its own copy of the unicode data.
Moving this back to gucharmap.
I think another bug needs to be cloned for xkeyboard-config.
