Description Miroslav Rajcic 2004-11-18 08:45:52 UTC
Croatian keyboard is not defined properly on my FC3 distribution using

One of the keyboard keys is wrongly defined.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Croatian keyboard
2. Press key next to the "right shift key" (first one left of it)
3. It should, but it does not, produce minus and underscore letters!

Below, there is a patch against file
"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/pc/hr" that fixes the problem.

This is a working hr keymap from XFree4.3, Debian fork.

Xorg 6.8.2 still has broken croatian keymap. I emailed fix to the maintainer 
of the CVS - no response. It would be nice if we could fix it over CVS, or if 
you would fix it yourself. This bug is being fixed by almost every 
distribution, isn't that funny? Everybody is fixing xorg's bug, but xorg 
developers don't. On http://www.grad.hr/~ivoks/hr is 
working /usr/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/pc/hr keymap. Beside that <AB10>, there is 
one typo (Seprator, and it should be Separator). Just merge this file to your 
CVS and everything will be fine. Tested, working.

This bug is in Xorg from the begining of the fork. XFree4.4 doesn't have it, 
Debian XFree fork doesn't have it. Even Pat will fix it in Slackware. Why is 
so hard to put thoose two lines in that file? We aren't very big country, but 
it would be nice to have a working keymap.
