Hi Graham, I never thought that I could help you, but playing around a bit on the keyboard seemed to open up an interesting obervation:
- £ - A working Pound sign!

Accidentally - because I never intended it - I have a UK Pound sign: £ Settings: LC_ALL is set to en_US.ISO8859-1 In /etc/rc.conf: keymap="german.iso" keyrate="fast" font8x14="iso-8x14" font8x16="iso-8x16" font8x8="iso-8x8" In X: Nothing changed, except stuff in xorg.conf that hasn't something to do with fonts 'n stuff. Tested setting: Editor GNotepad+ (port gnotepad+, run as gnp) Keypress: Alt-Gr + Shift + 3 Shift + 3 -> § Alt-Gr + 3 -> ³ Alt-Gr + Shift + 3 -> £ This is, as I mentioned before, obviously not intended. I'm using german settings for the keyboard. Note that I don't use -15 (instead of -1) so I don't have the Euro currency symbol in gnp, but I have it in OpenOffice (Alt-Gr + E). Maybe it works with -15, too. Further testing: Works in X-Terminal (standard xterm) Works in Sylpheed (Gtk 2) Works in GNotepad+ (Gtk 1) Works in OpenOffice 3.0.0 M9/9358 (german version) Maybe you want to try it. Here are some Pound signs for copy & paste: £ £ £ £ £ £ £ £ £. Use them wisely and in peace. :-) > And, what actually is the process for reporting > bugs or getting help with problem like this. I don't think it's a "problem", it's just a "strangely appearing circumstance of misconfiguration". :-) -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
