    Hello,

    I've seen that characters that need  to be typed won't appear in X11 window (an event is generated but the character doesn't show).
    I suppose this is a keyboard mapping issue, how can I solve it please ?

    Kind Regards

    I am using xmodmap to set the correct keyboard mapping:

    xmodmap /usr/share/xmodmap/xmodmap.be

    On debian you need to have the following packages installed:
    x11-xserver-utils
    gnome-applets-data

    Regards,

    Hello Marc,

    Seems to work (I've got a xmodmap.fr tailored for Cygwin/X here http://www-user.tu-chemnitz.de/~goal/xfree/#modmap)
    XEmacs barfs about modifiers so I'll try to create a custom xmodmap file asap.

    Regards
