problems with keyboard settings


I am using Xmanager with a Spanish keyboard. Unfortunatelly, the keyboard layout spanish.kyb is not exactlt the same as a real Spanish keyboard. For instance, I miss the key for curly braces. As a consequence, I do get it functioning for my "{" symbol but there is not way to get the "}" character. As I am a Latex user... this is a big hassle.
I tried to correct this by the keyboard editor but since the key corresponding to } does not appear in the layout there is no way.

I am using a Spanish Logitech cordless keyboard.

Any suggestions on how to correct this?

Thanks for your feedback.

Please download the attached file and copy it to "C:\Program Files\Xmanager1.39" folder. There was a mistake in the Spanish keyboard file.

Re: problems with keyboard settings


Using the same spanish keyboad layout, I found out that the numer 4 key does not work in new windows opened with Xmanager (e.g. Emacs editor).

Nonetheless, the $ character (Shift+4) works nicely.

Could you please provide some information/solution to the problem explained?

Thank you in advance

EDIT: I am currently using Xmanager Enterprise 4

Re: problems with keyboard settings

Thanks for your patience.

We've investigated and the spanish keyboard file in Xmanager wouldn't allow a user to type in the number 4 as you've experienced. The reason was that the file had an incorrect setting for the compose key combination.

I've attached a new keyboard file below which you can overwrite the existing file in the %ProgramData%\NetSarang\Xmanager\4(or 5)\Enterprise(or Standard)\Keyboard\ directory.

The file will be made public shortly but for now I've attached it below.
