Description Jean Krohn 2013-09-17 16:31:48 UTC
There seems to be a typo in the 'Compose' file of the UTF-8 locale, in the file
/usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose , 'dead_actute' should be 'dead_acute' I believe:

<dead_actute> <j>                       : "j́"    # LATIN SMALL LETTER J U006A with COMBINING ACUTE ACCENT U0301

My system is Arch linux:

% pacman -Qo /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose
/usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose is owned by libx11 1.6.2-1

This typo is also present in the freedesktop source, in the following file:


One of the effects is to make Qt's 'qmlscene' qml viewer output the following error:
"Qt Warning - invalid keysym: dead_actute"
