Bug Description

Binary package hint: xkeyboard-config


Since I upgraded to natty, the greater symbol changed to the ellipsis symbol on the period key, what I consider as a bug as I and many others I know use that key the old way..

There are less / greater keys on Hungarian layout also on "í" and "y" keys but these located far from each other on many stupid laptop keyboards (the "í" key often moved to the right side of the keyboard) so it's more comfortable to use the other two ("m" and ".")

So please roll back this change!

Looks like upstream also made this reversion in commit 94960d300cd669cc1b856c76dfbfccf7903f4b8e, so obviously worth cherrypicking.

This bug was fixed in the package xkeyboard-config - 2.2.1-1ubuntu2

xkeyboard-config (2.2.1-1ubuntu2) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Add 109_west_bengal_layouts.patch: four new Bengali keyboard layouts
    (LP: #793778)
  * Add 110_hu_revert_ellipsis_to_greater.patch: Cherrypick of upstream
    commit to revert the period key from ellipsis to greater. The latter
    was felt to be the more efficient key usage even though it's a bit
    redundant with other keys.
