Description Fred New 2002-12-26 21:34:11 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021218

Description of problem:
Using an Estonian keyboard layout, when I press <AltGr>+"<"  I get "<".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In X, open a terminal or gedit.
2. Press <AltGr> + "<".

Actual Results:  <

Expected Results:  | (I had to use the character map to get this.)

Additional info:

On my Estonian keyboard, the <, >, | key is between the left shift key and Z. 
From a virtual console, the showkey command shows a scan code of 86.

The keyboard for the virtual consoles works correctly and also in the X of Red
Hat 8.0.

This is probably related to bug 79404, but it doesn't seem to exactly match what
Jaanus is describing.  I can confirm that < and > appear when you press <AltGr>
and ; and :, respectively, and this may not be correct.  But it's more important
that we be able to get a pipe character out of this keyboard.
