Description Mirko Zeibig 2002-09-05 10:12:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826

Description of problem:
When invoking the null-provided rdesktop, non US-keyboard are almost unusable. 
1. You have to figure out the correct mapping between country and a
   numeric country-code
2. The german keyboard will not let you enter things mapped with AltGR (e.g.
@\{}[]).

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Invoke rdesktop with the option for an international keyboard.
2. Connect to a Terminal-Host
3. Try to use {@\.


Additional info:

The unified patches at http://bibl4.oru.se/projects/rdesktop/ provide a way out.
I use rdesktop-unified-patch19-9-0 rather happily and had no problems so far.
The Keyboard is working as it should and instead of remembering a number for the
keyboard-translation one may use two-letter countrycodes like 'de' or 'fr'. The
command will show you all available translations if invoked with the help-option.

I'll take a look at integrating it in the future.

Duping to bug with better title.
