Euro symbol not working
« on: November 27, 2009, 09:57:00 am »

 Hi all, i have a problem in VL6 standard GOLD, the keyboard Euro symbol (Alt Gr + 5) is not working properly instead it gives me this ½. ???  (new Euro value?)
 The xorg.conf is:

Code: [Select]
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier  "Keyboard0"
Driver      "kbd"
Option  "XkbLayout"  "it"   ## KEYBOARD_MAP!
Option  "XkbModel"  "pc105"    ## KEYBOARD_MODEL!

I also tryed with "it2" layout. Note that after installation i had to remove option variation, cause @ and other Alt Gr symbol didn't work (now they work). Is there a way to change "½" that is given with Alt Gr + 5 with a different symbol? Who knows?

Thanks,  Mat

Hi Kidd,
   Yes. It works!! Thanks a lot!  I check other keyboards here at work, and only mine has € printed on the 5!!! Really confusing.

 Bye, Mat
