Description David Balažic 2000-02-21 10:35:22 UTC
setting the keyboard to slovene doesn't work :
> loadkeys slovene
Loading /usr/lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwertz/slovene.kmap.gz
unknown keysym 'cent'
/usr/lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwertz/slovene.kmap.gz:6: parse error
syntax error in map file
key bindings not changed

I located the problem to file
/usr/lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/include/euro.inc.gz which is included
by slovene.kmap , the problematic line is :
altgr keycode 46 = cent

Commenting it out "fixes" the problem.

Comment 1 David Balažic 2000-04-10 08:19:59 UTC
After some looking around I discovered that the 'cent' symbol
is legal , as it is used by all other keymaps too.
The thing is that slovene.kmap has line :
codepage "iso-8859-2"
If I delete this line , then it works OK.
Note that I don't remember if the keyword is actually 'codepage'
or something else. It is one of the first lines in the file,
just look for *8859* :-)

Comment 3 David Balažic 2000-04-10 09:02:59 UTC
OK , the line is not 'codepage "iso-8859-2"' ,
but 'charset "iso-8859-2"'

Still here in Pinstripe.
Just do 'loadkeys slovene' and observe the error messages.
