caribou on-screen keyboard does not allow entry of the tilda (~) character.

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

Steps to Reproduce:

2. You can't
3. Cry in frustration because you cannot enter the tilda (~) in your password on your keyboard-less, pen-based computer therby gaining access to Fedora goodness.
Actual results:
Tears of frustration

Expected results:

You know, the tilda character gets used a lot in Unix-like systems.  Just sayin'.
Comment 2 Parag Nemade 2012-07-16 12:23:47 EDT
What I will just say here is that upstream has become unresponsive and its always better to try these discussion on upstream bugzilla as we just pull upstream tarballs and build it in Fedora.
Comment 3 pscottdv 2012-10-11 12:23:09 EDT
I filed the following bug with bugzilla.gnome.org:


And user anish appears to have provided a patch for the ~ and ^ characters.  Perhaps Fedora could see about integrating it into their rpm?
Comment 4 Daiki Ueno 2013-03-27 06:19:46 EDT
It should be fixed in caribou 0.4.8 (available in rawhide and f19).
