Can anyone help?
I have a Power-Book G4 with an italian keyboard. I have problems
when I connect to unix based system (KDE 3.3). I have problems
with special italian characters like é, but what's worst I cannot make
alt-key to work. I cannot write parantheses [ or ] or { or }, nor most
keys that need the alt command. This is worrying because it means
I cannot do much with VNC.

Thanks a lot,

Pablo

    We're working on the problem with key equivalents - it's nasty. Track
    progress on Bug #1100258 and Bug #1049564.

    Regarding the alt key, take a look at the setup in Connection ->
    Connection Profiles -> Modifiers. You can probably fix it there.
