Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 75529
latin0 not supported
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:22 EDT
Description of Problem:kbd doesn't treaet correctly accented characters, euro
sign, AltGr key, and so on... in text mode. Everthing OK in graphic mode. After
running redhat-config-langage, accented chars appear correctly, but hitting
backspace key after i for example erase two spaces (even the prompt).,
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):kbd-1.06.26
Upgrade from RedHat 7.3 with fr-latin0 keymap, fr_FR@euro as locale,
SYSFONT=lat0-sun16, and SYSFONTACM=iso15.
Steps to Reproduce:
I solved the problem by uninstalling kbd and kbdconfig-1.06.26, and
reinstalling console-tools from redhat 7.3 and kbdconfig-1.06.26!!
latin0 was dropped and renamed to the correct latin9 with 1.08. Does kbd 1.08
work for you with the latin9 keymap?
I wasn't expecting anymore :-D
Worksforme now with:
- Fedora Core 1 and kbd 1.08.
- in /etc/sysconfig/i18n:
- in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard:
any other combination I could try doesn't work full, which means
either no â¬ (euro) sign, no accents with man, etc...
Sorry: with above conf (locale=fr_FR, KEYTABLE="fr-latin9"), â¬ (euro)
sign did work in text mode, but didn't in X after reboot, at least in
emacs, where I need it badly. So I had to go back to:
locale = fr_FR@euro
alias man='LANG=fr_FR man'
Diacritics and euro sign, are now OK with locale ="fr_FR@euro" SYSFONT="lat9w-16".
But some apps don't accept fr_FR@euro e.g. system-config-users. Furthermore, I
get errors related to utf8 and pango, e.g. with evolution.
Comment 4: as for certain apps not accepting the locale, bugs need to be filed
against the apps. Seems to work ok with respect to kbd, so re-closing.
