Bug Description

Binary package hint: x11-xkb-utils

Polish diacritics are inserted when combining right Alt and letter:
Alt+a = ą
Alt+c = ć
Alt+o = ó
Alt+z = ż
Alt+l = ł
etc.
For some combinations of layouts it does not work when I switch to pl variant in KDE.
What is more strange the problem occurs in OpenOffice and Firefox, but not Kate.
Bellow I list variants I have tested and their results:
linuxfreak@linuxfreak:~$ setxkbmap -model hp6000 -layout pl,us,de -variant ,,
FAIL
linuxfreak@linuxfreak:~$ setxkbmap -model hp6000 -layout us,pl,de -variant ,,

It seems that the us layout is the cause, whenever it is not last or first on the list.
The model parameter seems not to contribute to the problem, as for pc105 situation is the same.

Hi,
Reproducing the bug does not give any additional output in the log file.
I am sending the Xorg.0.log

I cannot reproduce in Ubuntu 10.04 and Firefox.

Those lines marked with FAIL work OK for me. For example,
setxkbmap -model hp6000 -layout pl,us,de -variant ,,
works fine.

Typing AltGr + l = ł should work universally in GNOME, KDE, etc as no dead key functionality is involved.

Could you please try to reproduce in Ubuntu 10.04;

When you type 'setxkbmap -model hp6000 -layout pl,us,de -variant ,,'
you can see at the end of Xorg.0.log a new line similar to
(II) XKB: generating xkmfile /var/lib/xkb/server-2373FAEA6F9468A6CB19A3F6E7C3B80BD5288A0E.xkm

In your Xorg.0.log I do not see such lines. It is possible that this debug feature is enabled in 10.04 only, so do try again and report back.
