How do I get *any* euro stuff working in X. It used to work. Then I
upgraded to RH7.2 (kept the old home dir) and it stopped.
No idea why. I have:
keycode 26 = e E currency
in my .Xmodmap file. When I press altgr+e in xev it prints;
KeyPress event, serial 28, synthetic NO, window 0x1c00001,
root 0x5e, subw 0x0, time 2093935945, (84,91), root:(730,378),
state 0x8, keycode 26 (keysym 0x65, e), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 1 characters: "e"
What gives ? I'm thinking that somehow my AltGr key has been messed with,
but I've no idea how to prove it...
