I use RedHat linux9 and i dont know if this problem is specific to mozilla1.2.1,red hat's mozilla build or xkb or something else. I dont have such a problem using other applications (even gtk2 apps work by chosing x input method when a type greek text). In the past i have never a similar problem with mozilla. Note:to put an accent on a greek letter we first type the key[;](right to L) and then we type type the letter. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.type greek text 2.put an accent on a letter 3. Actual Results: I see this ->->-> 'a 'e 'o etc (say that a, e, o are letters from greek alphabet)
1.2.1 is very old, did you try it with a recent build?
no i havent try a newer because i dont know which build to try without breaking things in my installation(you know gtk2 etc) are there any stable builds for rh9 to try?
Are you using a gtk2 build of 1.2.1?
yes it's a gtk2 build and uses fontconfig for getting fonts.
Intl text entry is broken in gtk2 builds in general; we have dozens of bugs on that (all but one resolved duplicate, of course).
