I have created a new keymap for czech standard (QWERTZ) keyboard layout (cs, 0x405).

The original "cs" keymap found in rdesktop 1.5 and in CVS, contributed by Lukas Kubin (#1100305), is uncomplete and has several problems which make it unusable, such as remapping the small letter e to EuroSign, as reported in rdesktop bug #1375353 or recently at http://www.abclinuxu.cz/forum/show/181220 (in czech).

The attached keymap has been tested and seems to work for all charecters found on the czech QWERTZ keyboard in Windows.

    Added file named "additional" with some definitions of compose sequences for latin-2 characters. These migth come in handy when switching between two Central European keyboard layouts, such as Czech and Slovak. It is included from within my "cs" keymap, but might be eventually merged into the "common" file.

    Added a new Slovak keymap -- "sk". (The Czech keymap is already usable for Slovak language, but this one puts "SK" letters into the Windows language bar ;)

    I'm not convinced about the merits of the "additional" file. I think that sequences that are truly common should be added to the "common" file. For other sequences which are only relevant, say, for slavic languages, could be added to a new file, but it should probably have a better name than "additional" in that case.

    Also, note that there is already a "cs" file. I'd like to have some indication whether this new cs file is better than the old one. The optimal approach is to submit small patches which fixes one problem at a time, rather than replace the entire file.

    Hello,
    this "new" cs keyboard is way better then cs keyboard in source.

    I can show you tons of support forums where rdeskto is blamed of being crappy SW. It is not but the keyboard is ...

    This keyboard cs supplied in 2007 could save hours of live for people fighting cs keyboard. The best solution recomended is to switch to en-us keyboard and not using Slavic characters ... ;-)

    If you prefere small patches, it is small patch solving one problem - nonfunctional keyboard.

    If necessary, copy content of additional file to cs nad sk keyboards.

    Besst regards

    Petr Klíma

    This is what I prefer: Can you create two new keymaps (cs and sk) which is self contained, ie contains the necessary stuff from "additionals" etc? Then, people can try them out for some time. Then we can commit them.
