  • Summary changed from Palmpre2 SHR-u : the hardkeyboardlayout is wrong to Palmpre2 SHR-u : the hard-keyboard layout is incomplet

I am completing /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/palmpre
to add the corresponding xkb_symbols "fr" {} section
and I am almost done
But,
some keystroke are missing or misunderstood.
in English(without change anything) I have trouble with
key <AT> { [ at, at, 0 ] }; => nothing happen
key <PRD> { [ period, U007C, U003E, U003C ] }; => nothing happen
key <BKSP> { [ BackSpace? ] }; => is hard-coded as it overwright what I define (look below: does abackspace when I define "m" key); but as I don't have the english layout printed perhaps this key is good in english layout.
in French(process explain after) I have trouble with
key <AC10> { [ m, M, U002D ] }; => does a BackSpace?
key <BKSP> { [ BackSpace? ] }; => nothing happen
key <AT> { [ at, at, 0 ] }; => nothing happen
key <PRD> { [ period, U007C, U003E, U003C ] }; => nothing happen
To have my french layout working :
I replaced /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/palmpre by a completed version (attached)
added Option "XkbVariant?" "fr" in xorg.conf
and then restarted X with /etc/init.d/xserver-nodm

Thanks,
