I have RedHat7.1cz (Czech) on my computer and KDE2.2 over it and dead keys does not work in any of Mozilla components. When I switch my keyboard to Czech or Slovak, then by pressing '=a' the result should be 'á', but it is '´a', or by pressing '+z' the result should be '¾' but it is '·z'. It seems to me similar to bugs #63717 and #20932, but they are marked resolved and 'worksforme' and I cannot agree.

I try the following 1. got o /usr/share/xmodmap 2. type xmodmap xmodmap.cz then I can type '=a' => 'á' '+z' still equal to '·z' but the xmodmap.cz said keycode 21 = dead_acute caron dead_cedilla which mean the "+" sign SHOULD be acaron (not a dead_caron) the dead_caron is in keycode 11 = ecaron 2 dead_caron also, I change the xmodmap.cz in my system to keycode 11 = dead_caron 2 ecaron and try to type "2" "z" to get a '¾', but I still cannot. It seems we have problem with dead_caron, it seems other dead key which generate ISO-8859-1 characters have no problem.

what will hapeen if you start mozilla under cz locale ?
can you tell me is there any other app will do the right thing ?
My locale is cs_CZ (Czech, LANG=cs, LC_ALL=cs_CZ), and it is the environment where it doesn't work. KDE apps, like e.g. KEdit work good, also GEdit from Gnome apps works good. Not enough time to test more apps, sorry.
we may want to do this before m1.0

Switch to ISO-8859-2 before you read the rest: ok, here is my "better" reproducing procedure: (in my RedHat 7.2) 1. login into linux as KDE 2. in the KDE desktop menu, select "(K)":"Preferences":"Perpharials":"Keyboard" 3. The "Keyboard" preference dialogbox show up. 4. deselect "Disable Keyboard Layouts" 5. check on "Czech", keep "U.S. English" as "Primary Layout" 6. click "OK" 7 [us] menu will show up in the lower right corner 8. left click to toggle to "Cz" or right click to bring up the menu and select "Cz for Czech Now bring up mozilla, below is what I work '=' + 'a' = á '=' + 'e' = é '=' + 'i' = í '=' + 'u' = ú '=' + 'y' = ý '\' + 'a' = ä '\' + 'e' = ë '\' + 'i' =
really cannot reproduce the problem. Maybe due to mis communication. Can you put down detailed, step by step, including image reprodue procedure ?

Hi Jozef, Could you please verify with the latest build to see if it is still reproducible? if yes, could you please provide us more detailed reproduce steps? Thanks!
OKay, it still doesn't works for me, neither in 0.9.8 nor 0.9.9. Here is description of my system: - RedHat 7.1cz (czech - almost everything is the same as in official rh7.1, just some localization patches are applied); - KDE 2.1.1 (some of RPMS: kdebase-2.1.1-8cz1, kdelibs-2.1.2-1, kde-i18n-Czech-2.1.1-2, kde-i18n-Slovak-2.1.1-2, kdesupport-2.1-3, ...) - in KDE Control center -> Personal setting -> Keyboard layout I have main layout set to "U.S. English" and additional layouts "Czechoslovakian" (it means Czech) and "Slovak"; I can switch between layouts pressing Ctrl+Alt+K; If you need some of my config files ask for them (I don't know what are related to this problem). I will check this bug also home on my SuSE7.2cz box, there are other settings (and KDE2.2.2).

Oh, and the buggy behavior is the same for all components - writing new mail, filling html forms, changing preferences, ...
So, I tried how it works on my home SuSE with KDE2.2.2 and there is no problem (for both 0.9.8 and 0.9.9), so if no one else can reproduce this bug it is probably just problem with my office box installation or configuration.
I have same problem running Mozilla 1.0RC1 on RH7.3. I do not use KDE and I am not able to use dead keys to get proper letters from ISO Latin 2 charakter set. I am not using xmodmap, but xkb. Maybe it is somehow related to RH.
on my Mandrake Cooker system; without KDE, international keyboard using via XKB, keymap czsk, this works perfectly. i can write into any field (url bar, forms, composer) any caron and accute letter. i think, this is redhat-specific behavior, because on not one mailing list i see this problem, only with redhat distro. not very technical, but i believe that a little bit useful. i shall continue on some research about this problem..
I found cause of this problems. It is not in locales or keymaps etc. but it is in fonts. This is my fs/config, # lines were previously uncomented. With this config dead keys work in mozilla like they shloud. My secret favorit for troubleshooter among these files is line /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/ttf, where I had Arial font from MS. This was recommended somewhere for mozilla (and maybe other applications) becasue RedHat Arial is really ugly.) So it seems to me like that there is some problem with ttf+RH+mozilla. catalogue = /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi:unscaled, /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi:unscaled, /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1, /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo, /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic, /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID, # /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local, # /usr/share/fonts/default/TrueType, # /usr/share/fonts/default/Type1, # /usr/share/fonts/ja/TrueType, # /usr/share/fonts/ISO8859-2/misc:unscaled, # /usr/share/fonts/ISO8859-2/75dpi:unscaled, # /usr/share/fonts/ISO8859-2/100dpi:unscaled, # /usr/share/fonts/ISO8859-2/Type1, # /usr/share/fonts/ISO8859-2/Type1-URW, # /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/ttf, /usr/share/AbiSuite/fonts
Hmmm, it does not work for me, Adam - I have removed almost all fonts from my /etc/X11/fs/confing and /etc/X11/XF86Config but the behavior is still the same. But because it works on my home SuSE box I just assume I have some strange RH box in my office. May be it works for others.
what a hack. I have not touch mozilla code for 2 years. I didn't read these bugs for 2 years. And they are still there. Just close them as won't fix to clean up.
