Description Christian Rose 2002-10-21 20:19:35 UTC
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).

Comment 3 Christian Rose 2002-10-21 20:30:00 UTC
By the way, it would be nice if bug 50282 could be fixed.

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2002-10-21 20:48:26 UTC
Please submit your patch directly to XFree86.org at fixes@xfree86.org.
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.

Comment 5 Christian Rose 2002-10-22 01:45:47 UTC
Reported upstream to XFree86 now.

Comment 6 Christian Rose 2002-12-20 13:20:13 UTC
Any news on this? According to a mail from mharris, this had been applied to
XFree CVS.

Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2003-04-25 09:59:52 UTC
I believe this is fixed in 4.3.0 now and this bug report just never got
updated.  Closing bug as fixed in 4.3.0 in Red Hat Linux 9.  If the problem
does however still exist, please report it upstream at http://bugs.xfree86.org
if you haven't already, then reopen this report and paste the upstream URL
for me to track.

Comment 8 Christian Rose 2003-04-25 12:18:14 UTC
Verified as fixed in RHL 9. Thanks.
