thank you,i have fix this problem on my machine.
the file xinitrc is located in /home/dsl,i have open it with ted editor
in this file i have deleted the phrase contain "dillo" to disable the dillo splash screen on boot-up.
Posted by pirata on May 23 2006,09:35I found xkeycaps really weird. Made a mess out of my keyboard (which is Swedish, with åäöÅÄÖ). Anyway, I added this mod to my .xinitrc file:
where .xmodmap-my-own looks like this:
So I get the special letters by holding down AltGr and pressing a key, e.g., AltGr n produces ñ etc.
The first two lines are wellknown to all that have tried to get @ in Firefox
The next 9 lines are good for my Spanish documents (áéíóúÁÉÍÓÚ¿¡) (ýÝ maybe not needed ... )
And the last two for German (ü Ü ß)
There are a lot more for those who want other characters. You can find them in xkeycaps under the "Edit KeySyms of Key" right-click menu. For instance, if you need Icelandic there are thorn THORN eth ETH etc, Danish and Norwegian have ae and oslash, Portuguese has ccedilla, atilde etc, and I'd really hate to be French in a situation like this (no offense!) Where could you find room on the keyboard for all the aacute, agrave, acircumflex etc... ?

thanks pirata for solve the spanish "acentos" but with the click altgr+e we loss the euro symbol....how to soved it?
Posted by pirata on June 24 2006,22:49
Well, you could put the é on another key, like w or whatever so instead of
you would have
Cent is still on AltGr+c so if you need ccedilla you would have to do something similar....
The best thing would be to have the dead keys working of course...
Posted by kuky on June 25 2006,09:08thanks pirata...
Is possible to combine key alt with e...no key altgr? or keymaps only work with altgr...
Posted by kuky on June 25 2006,20:37ohh..
there are no symbol of euro in dsl... when i change to ver 3.0.1 in the original keyboard(es es) when clik altgr+e it put a strange insect of four legs in the screen...
any idea to solved the question..? to import the symbol...

¤ ---> Tiene cuatro patas, no puede ser un insecto. Insectos tienen seis patas, según mi conocimiento... Ni modo
It's the currency symbol, or popularly the "sun".
Anyway, the symbol € is called "EuroSign" in the keysym language. Unfortunately this code produces nothing in DSL 2.4, which I'm still on. I think it's necessary to use not latin1 but something like latin9 or latin15 for it to work. Not sure, though.
Posted by kuky on July 01 2006,11:05the euro sign is in Open office, insert especials characters (writte) is not necesary to change keysym e
