special characters

Post by Georg P. Isra » Tue, 15 Jul 1997 04:00:00



Hallo,

I need from time to time special characters e.g. <>.
Now I would like to be able to access them simply (withaut a compose key) by typing:

<"> + <U> = <>
<"> + <a> = <?>
<'> + <e> = <>
<"> + < > = <">
....

I'm not sure if it is possible to modify one of the '/usr/lib/kbd/keytables/*.map'  files to meet this constaints.

Does anybody know how to configure the system this way.
It would make my live a bit easy.

Thanks in advance

Georg

Yes. Check out the various german keymaps; I think 'de-latin1.map' has
various characters "dead" la old typewriters.

1. Display of special character

Hello,

I do have a serious problem with the display of my special characters

When I try xev, everything works fine, the System recognice the correct
Key and it's being displayed correctly in the xterm-window where I've
started xev.

But when I leave xev, the only echo I get from the System is a beep when
I hit the odiaresis-key on my keyboard.

Even after login, there is no display of my special characters, but when
I invoke vi I can use them the way it should be.

Configuration:
        linux 0.99pl13 (slackware-distrib)
        SHELL = tcsh
        loadkeys gr-latin1.map used (in /etc/rc)
        xmodmap Xmodmap.gr invoked by xinit
        xterm and rvxt behave the same way

any suggestions, hints, ...

thank you
Volker
