Using this xmodmap keymap, some keys are not correctly handled.
The problematic keys are those that can generated "composed" characters (using
For example, in my keymap :
keycode 34 = dead_circumflex asciicircum bracketleft
keycode 35 = dead_cedilla dead_diaeresis bracketright
ALTGR + KeyCode34 (on a US keymap, it is the left bracket) should produce the
left bracket but no key events are generated. The same keymap works perfectly
on every other linux jvm (blackdown's, ibm's...)
I am using the "/usr/share/xmodmap/xmodmap.qc" keymap on redhat 6.2
Here are the keyents generated after hitting ALTGR+[ on IBM's jdk1.3 :
java.awt.event.KeyEvent[KEY_PRESSED,keyCode=65406,Alt Graph] on frame0
java.awt.event.KeyEvent[KEY_PRESSED,keyCode=91,keyChar='['] on frame0
java.awt.event.KeyEvent[KEY_TYPED,keyCode=0,keyChar='['] on frame0
java.awt.event.KeyEvent[KEY_RELEASED,keyCode=65406,Alt Graph] on frame0

**Sun's JDK has the same bug. Please read below.**
Jdk 1.2.2 for Linux ./src/linux/native/sun/awt/canvas.c contains
an array of C structure named KeymapEntry. The name of the array
is keymapTable. The keymapTable array defines mapping between
Java VK symbols from KeyEvent class and X11 keysym symbols. Some
of the VK symbols defined in JDK 1.2 KeyEvent are missing from
the array. Missing symbols are VK_CIRCUMFLEX, VK_AT, VK_COLON
and some other key symbols. It is needless to say that those
corresponding X key symbols are also missing. The keymapTable
array is used to derive awt keysym from Xt keysym and those
missing symbols comprise a bug due to which we the Japanese
jp106 keyboard users and some other non-US keyboard users can't
input such important symbol characters as at-mark, colon, asterisk,
grave, circumflex, etc. For Linux Java 2 implementations from Sun
and the Blackdown, JDK 1.3.0 and 1.3.0_01(Sun's latest release) do
also have this bug. We'd like to expect that the bug be dispelled
from the next 1.3.0_02 release.
write a simple program to read KeyEvent.keyChar.

when using applet or java ide, like Forte, i can't write some chars.
Chars that i can't write are (), for the most problematic (imagine
coding under Forte and can't put a ( or a [....)
Problem occurs when i start Notepad.jar demo, for example
