Description Peter Hutterer 2008-09-26 01:49:36 UTC
Reporter in Red Hat Bug 241564 [1] claims that the key next to the enter key ('," in us layout) is wrongly specified:

"There seems to still be something a miss here at least on Gnome side
these 2 characters differ from Gnome ( ¨ Ä ) and terminal ( " ^ )
And I think the "terminal" got it right ( " ^ ) vs Gnome getting it 
wrong.. We don't have or use Ä"

key <AC11>	{ [dead_acute, Adiaeresis, dead_circumflex, dead_caron]	};

Wikipedia [2] agrees, there's no Adiaresis in the icelanding alphabet, and from what I can see no caron either.

I guess one of the following two might be better:

key <AC11> { [dead_acute, dead_circumflex ] }
key <AC11> { [dead_acute, dead_circumflex, dead_circumflex ] }

The wikipedia shot shows the circumflex on Level3. TTY keyboard map uses the former.
