Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 83986
Left-handed mouse; character encoding
Last modified: 2014-08-04 18:23:43 EDT
Section Mouse configuration:
"To configure your mouse to work as a left-handed ....
after boot, type gpm -B 321"
(see also bug 64760 ;-)
This is incorrect, as it would attempt to start a second copy of GPM.
This should be done by adding `-B 321' to OPTIONS in /etc/sysconfig/gpm.
Additionaly, this does not affect X (the environment more likely
to be used with a mouse) at all!
anaconda nor redhat-config-mouse provide a left-handed option unfortunately
(? I'm *not* left-handed, so I don't really know how much is it needed).
In the HTML version,
set your Mozilla default encoding to something other than iso-8859-1
(i.e. iso-8859-2) and see the Booty Loader config section. The
in "Intel(R) Pentium (R)", the (R) is wrong.
This is because the document is in iso-8859-1, but has no
META tag in <HEAD> specifying the character encoding.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Additional note to 1):
Preferences/Mouse (not System Settings/Mouse) does provide a GUI for left-handed
mouse in X.
In the future, please file one bug per report.
I am working on the charset meta information in the HTML. Thanks for pointing
that out. I added
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
to the top, but if I switch encoding for the browser, the registered trademarks
still show up as ?. The stylesheet might not be printing out valid iso-8859-1
encoding for the registered trademark.
I have changed it to produce ®, ©, and ™ in the HTML files which
are supposed to work regardless of charset. I changed the encoding of Mozilla
and it seems to work.
The left-handed mouse information has been updated and will be made available in
the next version of the manual.
The text has been changed to:
To configure your mouse to work as a left-handed mouse, reset the order of the
mouse buttons. To do this, after you have booted the system, go to the Main Menu
Button (on the Panel) => Preferences => Mouse.
Thanks for the feedback.
