Description Tollef Fog Heen 2006-09-06 03:25:31 UTC
When compiling libx11 with --enable-loadable-i18n, xterm still fails to open X 
the X input methods which means dead keys like ยจ doesn't work correctly.  I'll 
attach a patch which solves this problem.

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.

I can confirm that this bug is still present in libX11-1.3.3 (Xorg 7.5) and the attached patch corrects things for the en_AU.UTF-8 locale (which maps to the en_US.UTF-8 directory).

I have done some investigating in both the CVS and GIT repositories.  The
GIT repository contains no history and only contains the new (broken) data
in XI18N_OBJS.  The CVS repository shows that the correct configuration was initially imported (as xc/nls/XI18N_OBJS/en_US.UTF-8 v1.1.1.1) but was replaced
by incorrect data in v1.1 with no useful explanation.

Could you please send your patch to xorg-devel for review?

The attached patch looks very much like one that got applied a few years ago:

Closing as resolved.
