Bug Description

The symbols file located at '/usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/np' doesnot seem to work for zero width joiner. The 'equal' key in line 22 should work as zero width joiner.

'पर्=यो' is the output while it should be 'पर्‍यो' ।

The workout seems to be replacing 'equal' in line 22 with '0x100200D'

Also, the upper keys in numbers i.e. @,#,$,% etc are missing and should be available as is except for +,= where zero width joiner and non-joiner are used.

Thanks for your report!

If you think there is a need to modify the Nepali keyboard layout, I have to ask you to request that change upstream, more specifically here:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist.cgi?component=General&product=xkeyboard-config&resolution=---

If you do, please post a comment here with a link to the upstream bug report.

It's worth mentioning that if you install the ibus-m17n package, a couple of IBus input methods for Nepali are made available. One of those may fit your needs better.
