Description Henrik Nordstrom 2003-01-16 22:09:42 UTC

Description of problem:
The swedish keyboard layout is missing "bar/pipe" from the "less/greater/bar"
button (between lshift and z)

When you press Alt-GR + less/greater/bar you are supposed to get a "bar", but in
Phoebe you get a < as if Alt-Gr was not used.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find a computer with the less/greater/bar button between shift and z (keycode 94)
2. Try to type a pipe


Actual Results:  Alt-Gr is "ignored" and results in a < 

Expected Results:  A pipe/bar

Additional info:

I am downloading the Rawhide XFree86 packages in hope that this annoying problem
is fixed. If not I will have to reinstall RedHat 8.0 until a fix is available as
it is impossible to program without the pipe, and it does not seem to help
adding the bar using xmodmap.. (I assume the xmodmap issue is a sideeffect from
the use of ISO_Level3_Shift for the Alt-GR key, never really understood these
level shift magic keys)

Comment 2 Henrik Nordstrom 2003-01-16 23:11:39 UTC
Upgrade to rawhide XFree86 packages fixed the missing bar/pipe syndrom. Many thanks.

But all of a sudden the mousepointer is red. Don't know it it is due to me
fiddling around with the preferences, or something with the RawHide XFree86. In
any case if the red curstor is a bug it is another one not belonging in this bug

I consider this bug closed, but you should probably modify the version to Phoebe
as it is not relevant to 8.0.
