"keyboard problems dead-acute dead-grave dead-diaresis dead-circumflex dead-tilde"

Dear list,

I use gentoo linux and Xemacs. The swedish keyboard works OK with 
everything except Xemacs where I only get
dead-acute dead-grave dead-diaresis dead-circumflex dead-tilde

as response from those keys

Please how do I tweak Xemacs behavoir?



Best wishes Fredrik

Give us some more information on your X11 version, your XEmacs version, and
the version of your keyboard layout. I can’t reproduce this locally with
21.4.17 on

vendor string:    The XFree86 Project, Inc
vendor release number:    40400000
XFree86 version: 4.4.0

but there were some issues fixed with modifier keys before the 21.4.17
release. (In theory, the dead accent keys aren’t modifier keys, but these
things can work in myserious ways with XFree86.)

Thanks for your answer,

I use Xemacs 21.4.15-r3 and X.org-X11-6.8.0-r5 with keyboard layaout 
'General 102-keys (international) PC' in swedish. I think I should 
emphasise that I only have this problem with Xemacs. Everything works OK 
with nano, Kedit, OO-writer and Abiword and in the konsole with bash.
I certainly would appreciate if someone found a solution to the problem.

Best from Fredrik

As a workaround you could define keymaps for these keys, e.g.:

  (require 'iso-insert)

  (setq mute-acute-map (make-sparse-keymap))

  (define-key mute-acute-map "a" 'insert-a-acute)
  (define-key mute-acute-map "A" 'insert-A-acute)
  (define-key mute-acute-map "e" 'insert-e-acute)
  (define-key mute-acute-map "E" 'insert-E-acute)
  (define-key mute-acute-map "i" 'insert-i-acute)
  (define-key mute-acute-map "I" 'insert-I-acute)
  (define-key mute-acute-map "o" 'insert-o-acute)
  (define-key mute-acute-map "O" 'insert-O-acute)
  (define-key mute-acute-map "u" 'insert-u-acute)
  (define-key mute-acute-map "U" 'insert-U-acute)
  (define-key mute-acute-map "y" 'insert-y-acute)
  (define-key mute-acute-map "Y" 'insert-Y-acute)

  (global-set-key [(dead_acute)] mute-acute-map)

Ditto for the other dead keys (or mail me if you want my definitions).

Keyboard problems - no "dead keys"
Hello, I use Mathematica 5.0 in Linux. But I have a problem: I can't use accent characters like 'à', 'á', 'é'. Normally I insert them using '´' and 'a' (the ´ can be seen as a "dead key"). But in Mathematica when I type this sequence I get only "´a". In other programs (Firefox, OpenOffice, etc...) the keyboard works right, therefore it is not a X server configuration problem. Any hints? Thanks! Hi, > I can't use accent characters like 'à', 'á&#...

dead C64 and a dead C64c
I have two commodore 64's both exibit the same problem. they display no video I don't even get a black screen. >From reading some posts here I see that the most common problem is a bad PLA. Could this be the problem here aswell? I can't believe that I would have the bad luck to have the PLA die in both machine's. On both the Power LED and the 1541-II reset when the power switch is turned on but the unit does not respond to any keyboard commands.

Dead Battery = Dead Notebook ???
Ok here is a weird question. Several weeks ago my 4 or 5 year old Dell Inspiron 5000e laptop started having the following problems: 1. If left to sit for several hours or after it was on for an extended period of time it would hard power OFF (this wasn't because of any power settings that I could find). 2. The screen would be black after boot up. I could hook it up to an external monitor, but the LCD screen was black except for you could just make out what was on the screen, but just barely. Sometimes the screen would work, other times it wouldn't, other times it would pop up an...
