Bug#566009: Missing level 3 key selection and inserting default in dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
The configuration dialog for "dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration" does not ask for the level 3 modificator key and just inserts the default value into /etc/default/keyboard.
I want to use the right alt only as a compose key (not altgr and not level 3) and when using the wizard I am not asked for lv3 and therefore get:
It seems that the consequence of this is that the compose key is not functioning as I was used to (can not press eg: ralt+" (simultaneously) and then u to get ü, instead I need to use a little longer procedure of pressing each key by itself: ralt, " and finally u).
After manually removing the level 3 settting from that line to just:
Everything started to work as it should.
So adding an option to select the level 3 modification key or disable it would solve this.
