Bug#440486: kdebase-bin: gurmukhi keyboard missing U0A71 key (addak)

Package: kdebase-bin
Version: 4:3.5.7-2+b1
Severity: normal

*** Please type your report below this line ***


The Gurmukhi keyboard layout (chosen with KDE keyboard Layout Tool applet) does not appear to have a key to type the "addak"
character (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gurmukhi_script) which in Unicode is U0A71. This renders the layout unusable to type
Gurmukhi properly.

I have worked around this problem by selecting and pasting the said character from the website I mentioned above. This is hardly

I have tried to generate an eps layout file of the keyboard (in Gurmukhi mode) to visually see if there any key with U0A71 label on
it using the following command:
$> xkbprint -eps :0 ~/tmp/kb.eps

There wasn't any.

Hopefully, I am not missing something obvious and this is not a false alarm. Perhaps a keymapping command is missing somewhere in the kdebase package(?)
