I am sory to bother you all, but I am still having the same problem of not having the whole french keyboard working.

I am using a PowerBook G4 and MacOS X Version 10.1.1, with the powerbook keyboard or the Apple Pro Keyboard

Not being able to solve my pbs I did the following :
        cleared all file
        inslalled fink once again
        installed xfree86-base with fink
        installed windowmaker with fink
        installed XDarwin 1.0.4

At first launch XDarwin is already using "/System/Library/Keyboards/Francais.keymapping"

I have the follwing stty
speed 9600 baud; 50 rows; 148 columns;
lflags: icanon isig iexten echo echoe -echok echoke -echonl echoctl
        -echoprt -altwerase -noflsh -tostop -flusho pendin -nokerninfo
iflags: -istrip icrnl -inlcr -igncr ixon -ixoff ixany imaxbel -ignbrk
        brkint -inpck -ignpar -parmrk
oflags: opost onlcr -oxtabs
cflags: cread cs8 -parenb -parodd hupcl -clocal -cstopb -crtscts -mdmbuf
cchars: discard = ^O; dsusp = ^Y; eof = ^D; eol = <undef>;
        eol2 = <undef>; erase = ^?; intr = ^C; kill = ^U; lnext = ^V;
        min = 1; quit = ^\; reprint = ^R; start = ^Q; status = <undef>;
        stop = ^S; susp = ^Z; time = 0; werase = ^W;

Switching the "-istrip" by hand.

Then I am not able to have the acentuated characters to work (the keyboard is azerty, and I can get the { [ | and other characters working with the proper modifier keys, the and ^ are not working as dearkeys either).

I checked the situation with xev.

When typong a "", I have the following messages :
        keycode 27 (keysym 0xe9, eacute) ...
        XLookupString gives 0 chareacters: ""

In the ISO 8859-1 the entry for "" is
        "       233       e9       &eacute"
so the keysym is OK.

But why is the XLookupString delivering no character?

I have not been able to find any solution, and any help would be very appreciated as it seems from the content of the mailing list archive that I am the only one to have this problem.

Yours, Herv.
