Dead keys on Linux
« on: November 05, 2008, 09:17:29 PM »
Hi all,

I have a problem with the tilde key ("~") it seems to be dead in slickedit.  ???

Is there anyone who has a solution to this annoying problem as I need to use the "~" when coding c++.

I'm using a keyboard with Danish layout and the "~" key is working in all other programs except for slickedit.

Hi,

I found a solution to the problem  ;D

setxkbmap -model pc105 -layout dk -variant nodeadkeys

I guess it was not working when i forgot nodeadkeys

I hope someone else can learn from my mistakes :-)

Best regards

11 minutes. That's pretty good. I'll make sure support is aware of this should the question arise again.  Thanks!
