Installed the 0.9.21c version of Tux Paint under Windows 7 64bit Pro (English Version). When I tried to write a couple of greek words in the program, I realisded that I cannot put stresses to the words! I attached a screenshot.

  • The problem is the win32 function ToUnicode() which messes up the dead-key decoding. Not found/figured out a solution yet, although it's a problem others have encountered.

    I see, that's OK.

     
  • Some feedback from John P. on Jan. 27th:
    "no easy fix that I can see. SDL-1.3 has a redesigned mechanism I believe, but I think I can get SDL-1.2 to work by making a relatively complex change, one that would probably not be accepted by the maintainers."

    So we might be stuck with this issue on the Win32 side. It'd be interesting to know if other libSDL-based apps that accept text input (and that should accept Greek) work properly on Windows, or if they only work right on Linux. (It'd also be good to know if this issue affects Mac OS X.)

    How could I know whether an application uses the libSDL? I would be grateful to test it.

    P.S.: I cannot test it on MacOS X but, I recently checked it out on Ubuntu 10.04. The keyboard is fine, except the case in which the user put stress and diaeresis on the letter " ι ". (That is: " ΐ", meaning " ΄ " and " ¨ ".

    I can report the same problem for Scottish Gaelic - à is displayed as `a etc. So, it seems to be a general problem with combined keystrokes to create a letter.
