No

OS: Linux (RedHat & Suse)
jEdit: v2.6final
JVM: Sun JDK1.3 (final)
e-Mail: a_bored@gmx.de

Description:
The following keys produce no characters in the editor area:
<,>,#,',+,*

I am using german keyboard settings.
I suspect the JVM to be the problem, because I've encountered this problem with jbuilder too.

Hope, you can do something about it.

Yours

  • Same Problem here.

    JDK 1.3/Linux/KDE

    I can create + and * via the NumPad, but <> still isn't working :(

     
  • i had the same problem... and now i use JDK1.3 from IBM... (or the JDK from BlackDown) and the problem is not there anymore... :)

  • I have the same problem. I'm running jedit 3.0pre4 under Red Hat Linux 7.0 with Sun JDK1.3, german keyboard.
    The following keys do not work:
    <, > (Shift<), | (AltGr<), #, ' (Shift#), +, * (Shift+), ~ (AltGr+), ? (Shift), \ (Shift), etc., etc.

     
  • This is still a problem on ver. 3.0pre5 . I can't use the same keyes and sometimes I have problems with the Danish letters too (I'm using Danish keboard layout).
    I'm running Linux 7.0 with sun JDK1.3, and I have no problems using the keys in other java swing programs.

    Same with UK keyboard. Suggested fix of using IBM JDK works fine. Have not encountered any more keyboard errors with the IBM JDK.

  • The problem is a java VM, and at the moment the best way to deal with is is to change the java VM.
    The newest version 1.3_01 from sun still have the problem.
    IBM version 1.3 don't have the problem, but have some other problems about dbl click in swing.
    The blackdown version 1.3 don't have any of the problems, but compared to IBM it have a speed problem.
    For now I use the blackdown version because it seems to be the overall best solution for now.

    This is Sun Bug #4371923.
    It is fixed in Sun JDK 1.3.1 RC2.

    See
    http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/bugParade/bugs/43719
    23.html for more details.

    I am leaving this bug open until JDK 1.3.1 becomes "state
    of the art" on most platforms, so that hopefully those
    keyboard bugs won't get reported again and again.

    Dirk.
