Description of problem:
There is a strange interaction between xkb and emacs in Red Hat Linux 9.0
" (ASCII 34) is not outputted correctly, instead I get this ï¿½ (ASCII 168)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
??? (the one shipped with RHL9)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setxkbmap us_intl
2. start emacs
3. try to type " (space + ")
Actual Results: ï¿½ is written in emacs
Expected Results: " is expected
This is very annoying since I can't really use a emacs to program.
It only applies to emacs not run in a gnome-terminal (with -nw)
Sorry, I am not clear on what you're inputting.
You just press '"' (doublequote) and you get you get (ascii 168)
Do you get the same when you set a plain us (non-intl) keyboard with xkb?
How about in other apps? xemacs for example?
Well, with us_intl you have dead keys, so it's not actually pressing the same
button (") as in normal us layout, it also involves pressing space afterwards.
All other apps except gtk+2 based one. So I guess this might be the wrong component.
Re-assigning to XFree86 component.
If you think this is an XFree86 bug, please report directly to XFree86.org
If it is an X bug, it will likely be fixed within a week by reporting it
there. If that occurs, I will investigate it for future erratum.
If you do report it upstream, please provide upstream bug report URL here
and I will track and contribute to it upstream.
