I'm having some problems with xfree86. I can't put my portuguese
keyboard working as it should. The layout is ok but the dead keys don't
work. I went to the symbols directory and altered the pt file so that the
dead keys work (substitued asciitilde, asciicircum, etc... for
dead_tilde, dead_circumflex, etc), and my XF86Config goes like this:
After I exit x there is a message saying:
The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
> Error: No Symbols named "" in the include file "pt"
> Abandoning Symbols file "default"
Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server
Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back to pre-XKB keymap
waiting for X server to shut down
I tried replacing "pt" in XkbLayout for "dk" or "es" and they have the
same error. I also replaced it for "us" and there is no error.
I also tried to change the config like this
XkbGeometry "pc(pc105)" or "pc(pc101)" or "pc(pc102)"
and I get no error, but the keyboard doesn't work with dead keys. Can
anybody help with this?
xfstt doesn't work. I changed the init.d so he has a different dir:
TTFDIR=/win/windows/fonts (yes, unfortunately I still use windows)
and added '--dir $TTFDIR' to the start-stop-daemon line (after the '--'
and before everything else). I still can't get no ttf fonts. <sigh>
This is annoying me senseless. Any suggestions?
