Hi,

I've updated my system from 2.12 to 2.13

I'm using Xorg.

At xkbconfigmanager I've this configuration (I had not touch on that since it was working with 2.12):

Keyboard Model: pc101 Generic 101-key PC
Layout: US
Variant: intl us: International (with dead keys)

The "ç" is not working.

It should be displayed pressing "'" + "c".

In fact the result is a "c" with "'" (I cannot reproduce this symbol on this keyboard).

Obs. I'm writing this text from another computer.

I really appreciate any help!

Thanks in advance!

kkpity

you can choose the keyboard map using Dougals keyboard wizard ... Start Menu, Setup, Wizards, Mouse/Keyboard Wizard, Advanced Xorg Configuration

for the us keymap with the intl variant, you hold the AltGr key down and press the , key to get ç or Ç

the alt-intl keymap is supposed to be like the old us-intl keymap ... with the alt-us variant, you hold the AltGr key and press and release the , key then press c to get ç or Ç

i do not think the us map has a variant with a dead-cedilla comma key ... the older xkb maps did, but the maps were changed by Xorg

you can use xmodmap to make the comma key a dead-cedilla ... you can type this in a console:

xmodmap -e 'keycode 59 = dead_cedilla less comma less comma less'

you can put that line in /root/.xinitrc, before exec $CURRENTWM, and it will set the dead-cedilla key everytime Puppy boots

or you can put this line in /root/.Xmodmap:

keycode 59 = dead_cedilla less comma less comma less

or you can edit the us map file in /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/pc/

I have no AltGr key on my Dell D610 notebook. So¸ I have choosen to put following line at /root/.xinitrc:

xmodmap -e 'keycode 59 = dead_cedilla less comma less comma less'

... and it worked!

Now I have the key ç pressing comma plus "c".

Thank you very much for your help!

One thing that I love in puppy is its community. I have tried other Linux systems¸ but puppy is the best one in terms of helping!

Best Regards¸

kkpity

For your information : I am now using Precise 5.2.60 and keyboard types frenchy without any problem. That is strange as macpup 529 is based on precise.
Already tested : puppy pfkeys=fr at booting
Set keyboard at france at first boot and x restarted
Nothing, rien de rien.

... je ne regrette rien... (song/chanson) Very Happy

Pelo,

which is creating problems : precise 5.2.60 or macpup 5.29 ?

In any case, if it's any consolation, we French-Canadians need to config the keyboard twice for French. Once with
configuration -> assistant souris/clavier -> choix du type de clavier par pays -> cf
Then, with
configuration -> assistant souris/clavier -> configuration Xorg avancée du clavier -> puis la routine Keyboard model, layout, layout variants.
(C'est pas encore traduit.)

L'étape 1) devrait suffire pour un clavier azerty français, sinon il te faudra passer à l'étape 2, mutatis mutandis. (fr au lieu de cf, etc.)

A+
