Question on keyboard layouts
« on: April 16, 2010, 07:30:22 pm »
Hello :)!

I've set my keyboard layout to se, and it's working properly for root and vl in icewm and for root in jwm but, for vl using jwm, only the se-special characters print (like åäö), while the characters requiring an Alt-gr combination do not (@{[]}\||).
Any help on this, what am I doing wrong?

EDIT: The symbols from a Alt-gr combination (@{[]}\| ...) work if booted in to icewm as vl, and also in jwm if changed into subsequently. I does not work if booted into jwm as vl, but if then changed into icewm it works, even in jwm if switched back ???.

Cheers :)/

Which version of Vector are you using?
It's not LIVE, is it?(just a guess in the dark)
VL6.0-Light@MSI MS-1652(AMD TurionX2 ZM-84 2300 MHZ, 4 GB RAM, 250 GB HDD, Nvidia GForce 9600M GT, GIGABYTE AirCruiser N300)

It certainly is.
VL 6.0 Light LIVE, with the contents of the iso on a separate HDD partition, bootparam changes used.

The issue is that booting straight into jwm (as opposed to icewm) results in missing keyboard symbols, what settings-file, or what script is not run, what have I missed.

Setting the keyboard layout in jwm for vl results in gtkdialogue errors (or the like, I'm not in VL now) , while setting the layout when logged in as root works perfectly.
Also, changing jwm-settings for vl didn't work, so I copied /root/.jwmrc to /home/vl/.jwmrc.

Still confused :)/
