Description Nicolas Mailhot 2006-11-01 09:13:09 UTC
This patch adds a be(oss) similar to the fr(oss) one. The only changes are due
to differences in standard serigraphy between France and Belgium

It depends on the fr(oss) cleanup in bug #8853

Like before, please do not apply this patch at once — leave some time for
Belgium users to comment

Proposed patch

1. Fix §/6
2. Replace ldot with lstroke as there are no catalan speakers in Belgium, but
Polish may be useful

Comment 5 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2006-11-02 12:04:58 UTC
OK, so I will wait for your "go ahead" with this one.
Comment 6 Nicolas Mailhot 2007-01-04 12:02:05 UTC
People would like more stroked glyphs in this one; does deadstroke exist? I
didn't find it in any xkb map (on my system)
Comment 7 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2007-01-04 12:07:56 UTC
From keysymdef.h:

#define XK_dead_stroke                   0xfe63

So I think you can try...

Comment 9 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2008-12-17 09:11:06 UTC
Nicolas, do you have a final version of these variants?
Comment 10 Nicolas Mailhot 2008-12-17 10:03:49 UTC
I may have one someday but it looks like someday is not soon so it's probably better to publish this version and let people with more free time than me improve it.

I'm sorry it turned that way. I need 25h days it seems.
Comment 11 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2008-12-17 10:22:34 UTC
Do you want lstroke to be replaced with dead_stroke? What about Lstroke (4th level)?
Comment 12 Nicolas Mailhot 2008-12-17 10:38:39 UTC
deadstroke would be fine.

There is not enough room on the layout to include all the polish stroked letters, lstroke is not sufficient by itself, so a dead key is needed
Comment 13 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2008-12-17 10:51:18 UTC
What about 4th level?
Comment 14 Nicolas Mailhot 2008-12-18 10:26:55 UTC
Leave it empty for now someone will fill it.
Or just take the value of the fr(oss) keyboard for 3rd level, and put the dead stroke on 4th
Comment 15 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2008-12-21 13:48:54 UTC
ok, committed. Nicolas, could you please check?

removes wrong comment, and lines out the drawing

Attached patch fixes a discrepancy between comments and actual key
assignments.  It also lines out the visual example properly.
Comment 17 Benno Schulenberg 2013-09-02 10:34:40 UTC
Forgot to say: I emailed the original submitter and he answered
(quoted with permission):

  "This is all very old, I fear I don't remember all the history clearly.
  [...] I *think* it's probably a small mistake -- dead keys are more
  flexible but they're a usability PITA.  You can take this mail and
  propose a change to svu if this is annoying Belgian users."

If anyone is using this variant, they probably don't want to see any change
in key assignment, so the patch adapts the comments instead.

Thank you, it is in git now
