How does Gnu emacs need to be built on HP-UX to make AltGr key work
on a remote Linux with Finnish (German, French, whatever) keyboard?
Various FAQs suggest an xmodmap hack that makes it work on an HP
workstation, but they don't help any in this situation.
Running emacs on the Linux box, or another remote Linux box,
or a remote Solaris box, or running Xemacs on the HP box,
all work just fine, with AltGr and dead accents working
with no xmodmap trickery.
With Gnu emacs 20.7 AltGr doesn't work at all.
It compiles without any hickups with default settings
(exept --prefix), 8-bit characters work, dead accent
keys beep (so they work well enough to be fixable)
but AltGr does nothing whatsoever - checking with
view-lossage it appears as if emacs didn't see it at all.
The box I'm trying to build it is an HP9000/L1000 server
running HP-UX 11i. (Building Xemacs 21.4.3 in the same box
succeeded without a hitch, and AltGr and dead accents work
there with no tricks whatsoever.)
I've tried a couple of other machines running HP-UX 11.0,
same result. On the other hand, if I build it under HP-UX 10.20
the result is that AltGr *does* work, but dead accents do not
(no sign of them in view-lossage).
I have tried both HP ANSI C as well as gcc 2.95, no change.
What am I doing wrong?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
