Alt-Gr does not work on Norwegian keyboard after default loaded
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:53:26 EDT
Description of problem:
Alt Gr key does not work when using Norwegian keyboard with Xkb layout set to
"no" in XF68Config
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Option "XkbLayout" "no"
to XF86Config (by hand or via config tools.)
2. Log in
3. Press <Alt Gr> + 2 while text input field has focus
Character '@' inserted
No character retured.
after login; keyboard layout switcher may be set up to do this automatically.
Actually, it turns out that the keyboard layout switcher applet does this; Alt
Gr functionality is lost after Keymap is set to "Gnome Keyboard Default", which
is what the applet does on startup in the default setup.
Unfortunately, gkb_xmmap causes other problems - see bug 106172.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 106171 ***
Marked as duplicate of bug 106171 as there is more of a general problem with the
applet and its supplied keymaps.
And that should be bug 106171 (not 106172) in all my above notes.
