Description David Balažic 1999-12-03 16:38:35 UTC
There is no slovene (XKB) keyboard layout.
As only XKB layouts are offered at install time , this is a problem
for all slovene users.
When using non-XKB keyboards , there is a BackSpace <-> Delete problem,
which can be fixed with xmodmap.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 2000-01-18 20:21:59 UTC
do you know where I can get some slovenian xkb layout files?  If so, attach them
here or at least provide a URL.

Comment 2 Preston Brown 2000-02-04 15:33:59 UTC
if you can supply such a map, please create an attachment and reopen the bug.
We cannot locate a slovene xkb map and do not have the time or resources to
create one.

Comment 5 David Balažic 2000-02-09 09:58:59 UTC
There is a slovenian XKB ( it is work in progress )
at ftp://sizif.mf.uni-lj.si/pub/i18n/xkb.tar.gz , I attached it here and also an
updated version of the 'sl' file.

The author ( Marko Samastur <markos@elite.org> ) said the following :
( this a translation from slovenian to english by me )

He sent the new version to XFree86 and it should be included in their next
He also said that it is probably not neccesary to send the files by me ( david )
, as they will be available soon (?) in the official XF86 package.

He notes that the file will be renamed from 'sl' to 'si' and that redhat should
do the same , if he includes the files before the new XF86 is avaliable.
( dont forget to change the reference in the file 'xfree86' too ! )

(  end Marko Samastur mail )

Comment 6 Preston Brown 2000-02-10 20:06:59 UTC
fixed in XFree86-3.3.6-12 and later.

Comment 7 David Balažic 2000-04-03 16:17:59 UTC
In XFree-3.3.6-20 ( the one from zoot-RH6.2 ) you forgot to include the file
'sl' ! So it does not work.
There is also no choice for 'Slovene' in the gfx installer ( for the keyboard
layout ).

Comment 8 Preston Brown 2000-05-05 17:08:59 UTC
argh, you are right.  This will be fixed in an X errata for 6.2.
