Bug #473 - Keyboad Layout and Modifier Issues
- Duplicates: Bug #71 - Omega (?) symbol appears instead of @ on GB keyboard
Google user: gra...@interdog.co.uk
- Synergy+ 1.3.5 from SVN on 13/5/2010
(Same behaviour seen in Synergy 1.3.3)
- Server on Windows 7 64bit
- Client on Kubuntu 9.10
- UK keyboard and keyboard layout used on both.
Keyboard layout issues
Try to type an @ symbol on the client machine and an Omega symbol appears
instead (strangely, in a VMware client, it shows a lower case q instead.)
Also in a VMware client [ and ] appear as 8 and 9. They function correctly
in other applications, or using the local client keyboard. All other keys,
included the shifted version of these work as expected.
Change client to a US keyboard layout by running setxkbmap us causes keys
to work as expected (including in VMWare client). However, doing this
renders is impossible to type a pound (£) sign.
After restarting server application, client reconnects automatically, but
shift and control modifiers no longer work on client.
Killing and restarting the client process restores modifier behaviour.
Any hints greatfully received.
