X 4.1.0 Hints for french PowerBook users...

After struggling with X keyboard configurations for a while, I finally found
a way to get access to {, }, [ and ] under X on a FRENCH PowerBook keyboard.

There is a problem with the standard key mappings under X 4.1.0 (I'm running
unstable), you should modify the file:


and just after this line:

    name[Group1]= "FR-1";


    key <LALT> { 
        symbols[Group1] = [ Mode_switch, Multi_key ],
        virtualMods = AltGr

I don't know who maintain this package but as a matter of cleanup, there
should be a section "powerbook" added which includes the "extended"
definition and adds the key above.

Also, here is the proper InputDevice section to put in XF86Config-4:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier    "Generic Keyboard"
    Driver        "keyboard"
    Option        "CoreKeyboard"
    Option        "XkbRules"    "xfree86"
    Option        "XkbModel"    "macintosh"
    Option        "XkbLayout"    "fr"
