Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 76439
Add EuroSign to AltGr+5 on Swedish/Finnish keyboard layout
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:51 EDT
The standard placement for the Euro sign is on AltGr+e, but some older and odd
keyboards have the sign on AltGr+5. Windows does accomodate for this and allows
the EuroSign to be entered both ways.
I'm attaching an attempt to patch this (don't know if it is correct or if I'm
even patching the correct file) for both the Swedish and Finnish layouts (they
are pretty much identical).

By the way, it would be nice if bug 50282 could be fixed.
Please submit your patch directly to XFree86.org at email@example.com.
As soon as the patch is verified as correct by the XFree86 team, and
checked into XFree86 CVS, it is a potential candidate for backport
to future Red Hat Linux XFree86 packages. All changes of this manner
must go through XFree86 prior to being accepted in Red Hat Linux.
I'm defering your request for now. Please feel free to reopen this
report as a reminder once your patch appears in XFree86 CVS.
Reported upstream to XFree86 now.
