Description of problem:
I'm using gnome keyboard layout switcher applet to switch between english and
hebrew keyboards. When I switch to hebrew, I have to hold right alt to enter
hebrew characters. It works fine with other languages. There is no such problem
in kde (with kde keyboard switching utility).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use gnome keyboard applet to switch to hebrew keyboard

Actual Results:  English characters being entered unless right alt is being held.

Expected Results:  Enter hebrew  characters without holding right alt.

In what apps in gnome do you see this - all of them?
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2003-04-14 16:39:43 EDT
You need to hold right alt with all applications (including xterm, 
mozilla, openoffice, etc.) or only with GTK/GNOME applications?
Comment 3 Pavel 2003-04-15 02:07:36 EDT
It happens in non-GTK applications too (I tried openoffice and mozilla)
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2003-04-21 14:00:21 EDT
OK, some problem with the keymaps that come with the keyboard switcher then.

(Sorry about the inactivity here)

Is this still a problem with Fedora Core 2?
