Re: Keyboard problem

Hi. I've a little problem here...
I just upgraded to XFree86 4.3 packages from Ralf, and I just noticed the
keyboard doesn't behave the way it is supposed to anymore. Let me explain:
I use an Italian pc-105 keyboard (it layout). I don't know if there are other
layouts with this "feature" around, but with this one it is necessary to hit
Alt(Right)+key to print several symbols. For example, if you want to get '@'
you need to press Alt(Right)+ò. Square and curly brackets are also typed this
way. This is how it used to work until... well, until 20 minutes ago :(.
Now the problem: after I upgraded XFree86 to 4.3, this doesn't work anymore.
(i.e. I had to cut-and-paste the above '@' from another window). Does anyone
know how to fix it?
thanks and regards
I've had exactly the same Problem:
All combinations with "Alt-Gr" + "xy" doesn't work.
I'am still using XFree86 4.2.1-6.deb
In my opinion the problem isn't XFree86.
I analyzed /etc/X11/xkb. When reading the config files there where a lot
of extremely suspect mistakes.
I tried to "apt-get remove xkbd xlibs --purge" and then install them
once again. This and some other things couldn't change the situation.
Therefore i removed "/etc/X11/xkb" completely. When installing
xlibs_4.2.1-6_i386.deb i found the answer: It don't install the whole
file-structure with all config files.
So i moved all by hand within "mc" and now it works as expected.
All Files from "xlibs_4-1-0-15_i386.deb" to "xlibs_4.2.1-6_i386.deb"
have the same problem.
I send this mail parallel to the maintainer "Branden Robinson", may be
he could correct this thing.
