Description of problem:
Using gnome-terminal, I can type
and get c-cedilla just fine. But with Qt apps (including
konsole and KDE apps), I get :
instead, i.e. compose is utterly non-functional.
Note I have multi_key xmodmapped to Alt-Gr.
Mode_switch works however.
Note these messages on starting Qt apps :
Qt: Locales not supported on X server
Starting gnome-terminal (from KDE) gives :
(gnome-terminal:30356): Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by Xlib
(gnome-terminal:30356): Gdk-WARNING **: can not set locale modifiers
but none the less, I can compose l, -> lcedilla, e' -> eacute, etc.
(gnome-terminal will not let me compose
LATIN CAPITAL LETTER L WITH ACUTE though)
I'm using a UK pc101 keyboard, with Multi_key xmodmapped
to Alt Gr's key, and capslock coded to Mode_switch.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set /etc/sysconfig/i18n to en_GB.UTF8 (default from install for en_GB)
2. start kde
3. try to type Multi_key , c or typical variants thereof
Actual Results: I get ",c" as text, i.e. no composition.
Expected Results: I should have got çla;
Using LANG=en_GB, I can enter these, but can no
longer use other things like eurosign under Mode-switch-4
Using LANG=pl_PL I can enter some others like the
LATIN L mentioned above.
This is also occurring in our Qt app, so I do not
think it's KDE specific.
it's fixed in qt-3.1.1, which is in rawhide.
only has 3.1.0 Qt. So where can I download the RPM ?
Can I upgrade this/these RPMs without breaking the rest of
and what about "LATIN CAPITAL LETTER L WITH ACUTE" ?
Note I built a clean Qt 3.1.1 from Trolltech source, and the
problem still persists in our application: I cannot compose
