Attachments: Patch to fix backslash/bar in us(dvorak)

Description Johann "Myrkraverk" Oskarsson 2006-11-17 05:32:56 UTC
This is a duplicate of https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9060

The backslash/bar definition is missing from the dvorak variant of the us
layout,  in the (on my system) /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/pc/us file.

This means, that switching to a layout that uses this key for something else,
such as the Icelandic one - is - and swithing to us(dvorak), the key is still
using the Icelandic definition.

I found this bug on Solaris Express Community Release build 50 (snv_50), which I
believe has Xorg 6.9.  This probably applies to all other Xorg versions as well.

Sergey, I download the CVS today and don't find the backslash/bar in us(dvorak). Maybe the patch is reversed by other one?
Comment 5 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2007-01-25 13:14:35 UTC
It is in dvorak-classic now. Should it be put in dvorak as well?

I think yes. The bug is filled against xorg 6.9, before the dvorak-classic
inclusion in xkeyboard-config. I think the bug affect both layouts and
dvorak-{r,l} but these two includes us(dvorak).
Comment 7 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2007-01-25 13:27:02 UTC
Actually IIRC in xkeyboard-config dvorak was moved to dvorak-classic, that is why the patch got lost. Anyway, fixed.
