UK £ (pound) sign problem
Posted on 1997-03-28
The £ (pound) sign is not always available, obviously it works in Netscape, and vi but not in an xterm, nor does it print out from LyX.
A look at xkeycaps shows the problem with xterm (allowing sendkeys).
When the Ascii portion of the keysym is like this:-
ASCII 2 0x32 50 062
and with shift pressed:-
ASCII " 0x22 34 042
the key 2 (") and the quotes work OK. However when the structure of the ASCII modifed by shift value changes to something like:-
ASCII M-# (£) 0xA3 163 02 43
nothing is available.
How can I get the £ sign working? What does M mean in this case ? Is this the problem?
Obviously, i am using 'uk.map'; that came with Slackware 3.0.
