Subject: Keyboard problems (cont.)

Thanks, but:
It's only in Amaya that Alt-Gr doesn't have any effect. Otherwise it
works fine. Amaya seems to switch it off.

My xmodmap -pk says:
    111    	0xff61 (Print)	0xff62 (Execute)	
    112    	0xffaf (KP_Divide)	
    113    	0xff7e (Mode_switch)	0xff20 (Multi_key)	
My modmap says:
shift       Shift_L (0x32),  Shift_R (0x3e)
lock        Caps_Lock (0x42)
control     Control_L (0x25),  Control_R (0x6d)
mod1        Alt_L (0x40)
mod2        Num_Lock (0x4d)
mod3        Mode_switch (0x71)
mod5        Scroll_Lock (0x4e)


BTW: The same problem is in Windows 98. Something to do with danish keyboard
>>The use of Alt-Gr depends on the current installation. Some Linux distributions
>>use that key for generating some frequently used letters with diacritics like
>> in French (see a French keaboard)>>>>.
>>I personally have a QWERTY (uk) keyboard and I use the Atl-Gr as a mutli key.
>>I have a configuration file in my HOME directory .Xmodmap that contains:
>>keycode 22 = BackSpace
>>keycode 187 = Delete
>>keycode 113 = Multi_key
>>     Irene.

>Sorry to disturb, but I simply can't get Alt-Gr characters
>(e.g. $, @) as described by your doc, neither on Windows
>or on Linux. I just get the "standard" characters (e.g. 4, 2).
