Hi,

I'm trying to connect with rdesktop-1.4.1 an W2003.
My keyboard is an US qwerty.
rdesktop -k fr W2003
and keymap fr is configured with "enable_compose"

I can't write some accents like ê ö î, and so more...
only é,è,à and ç.
All I can see is:
WARNING: No translation for (keysym 0xea, ecircumflex)

Is there any way to use an US keyboard with an french
server?

Thanks.

    You could try -k us_intl with the us_intl keymap here:

    ftp://vladserver.ath.cx/us_intl put it with the rest of the
    keymaps

    Thanks for the reply.

    I did -k us_intl, and I've got all the accents working but
    only in Word and only with langage=EN.

    1/ With Word: if I check langage=FR, I lose my accents, my
    keyboard become AZERTY, so I have to leave langage=EN, then
    I can't verify the grammar with the french dictionnary.
    (Stupid Windows Word)

    2/ It never works with a login screen, cmd, Excel, neither
    PowerPoint, with FR or EN.

    and I've got 400 french people with US-keyboard... :-(

    try setting keyboard layout in regional options (control
    panel), at the 'languages -> details' tab, set language to
    french, and keyboard layout to us international

    With the last action on regional options, it's working now.
    Thanks a lot.
