Conas ata tz?
I added some special Irish support to console-tools (0.2, available at
ftp://metalab.unc.edu) recently; it allows Irish accents including
(dot above consonants). These changes are being merged into kbdtools;
I am not sure if these have made it into SuSE 6.1. If they have, then do
in /etc/rc.config set:
(if you have a US keyboard, else uk.map)
Edit this ga.map, and after the include lines add:
Copy the file attached (irish-new.inc) to
Then restart the kbd with
# /sbin/init.d/kbd start
or reboot, and it should all work. You should now be able to type fadas
using the 'AltGr' key as a
compose key; e.g. <compose> <a> <'> (one after another) gives a (a
<compose> <c> <.> gives c with dot above. You will only be able to see
seamhu's on the console,
though; this is being worked on.
If this doesn't work, then the latest console-tools is not installed.
You could try compiling it yourself if
you like, or else replace use the irish-old include file, attached and
change the setting in /etc/rc.config to
FONT="iso01.f16". This will give you just fadas. The fadas will be
viewable under X if you have the
right fonts installed.
Please tell me what luck you have,
