Keyboard layout "no" is broken in virtual consoles after Fedora 18 -> 19 upgrade
Last modified: 2013-11-11 19:34:03 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrading from Fedora 18 to 19, the keyboard layout in virtual consoles
is severely broken (the keyboard layout in X11 is fine).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Most of the keys are working like expected, but 5 keys are wrong:
` is not a dead key like it should.
This key have the English keyboard mapping and does not produce the å character like it should.
The dead, double dot key (used to for instance produce ö) is missing.
This key have the English keyboard mapping and does not produce the ø character like it should.
This key have the English keyboard mapping and does not produce the æ character like it should.
I see that the content of /usr/lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/no.map.gz is
actually identical in both Fedora 19 and 17, so I am not sure why this has not
surfaced before, however looking into the content it is clearly bogous,
e.g. the line like
keycode 40 = braceleft bracketleft
should obviously have been
keycode 40 = +ae +AE
Please fix so that virtual console "no" keymap is 100% identical to the X11 "no" keymap.
System Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8
VC Keymap: no
X11 Layout: no
X11 Model: pc105
X11 Options: terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp,
