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):
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?
You need to hold right alt with all applications (including xterm,
mozilla, openoffice, etc.) or only with GTK/GNOME applications?
It happens in non-GTK applications too (I tried openoffice and mozilla)
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?
