PostPosted: Sun Jun 02, 2013 12:08 pm    Post subject: [solved] Eurosymbol in X Reply with quote

In X I managed to get the dead keys working. I'm using XFCE4.
What I can't manage is to get the euro symbol working. And I would like to get é ë etc with altgr insead of the "nodeadkeys" option.

I followed the guide on: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/guide-localization.xml

Does anyone know what the right config is?

This is my config:
Code:

elmarotter@trillian ~ $ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-keyboard.conf
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "keyboard-all"
        Driver "evdev"
        Option "XkbLayout" "us_intl"
        Option "XkbModel"  "pc105"
        #Option "XkbVariant" "altgr-intl"
        #Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
        Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp:switch,terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
EndSection


Code:

elmarotter@trillian ~ $ cat /usr/share/fonts/misc/fonts.alias | grep iso8859-15
fixed        -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-iso8859-15
variable     -*-helvetica-bold-r-normal-*-*-120-*-*-*-*-iso8859-15
7x13euro     -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--13-120-75-75-c-70-iso8859-15
7x13eurobold -misc-fixed-bold-r-normal--13-120-75-75-c-70-iso8859-15

I run xmodmap from .xinitrc for fine tuning in otherwise US UTF-8 boxes. I'm using left Windows key to switch.
Code:
$ cat .xmodmaprc
keycode 133 = Mode_switch
keycode  13 = 4 dollar 4 cent
keycode  24 = q Q otilde Otilde
keycode  26 = e E EuroSign cent
keycode  30 = u U udiaeresis Udiaeresis
keycode  32 = o O odiaeresis Odiaeresis
keycode  38 = a A adiaeresis Adiaeresis
keycode  39 = s S scaron Scaron
keycode  40 = d D degree
keycode  52 = z Z zcaron Zcaron

Do you know what number 'altgr' is?
So I can use that.

You can use xev command to find it out.

Thanks. This solved the one half and most important part of my question:
I found out that in '/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc' the file '.Xmodmap' is used. So I used that one.

The output is:
Code:

elmarotter@trillian ~ $ cat ~/.Xmodmap
keycode 108 = Mode_switch
keycode  14 = 5 percent EuroSign percent EuroSign NoSymbol EuroSign


Now I only have to set all the special caracters like é, ë etc and it should work I think.
Thanks!

You are welcome! Thanks to you I added μ to my list, wanted to do it for long time. You can look into /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols for clues.
