Hi Norbert,

    is this specific to gedit or does it affect all GTK+ applications
(e.g. nautilus or gnome-terminal)?

I am not familiar with xmodmap myself, but I would look for information
about xmodmap and gtk in general.

    Hello all.

    I want to type German umlauts using the Meta keys on a US keyboard
    (Sun Type 7).
    I created an xmodmap file "umlauts" with the following content:
    keysym Meta_L = Mode_switch Mode_switch
    keysym Meta_R = Mode_switch Mode_switch

    keysym a = a A adiaeresis Adiaeresis
    keysym e = e E ediaeresis Ediaeresis
    keysym i = i I idiaeresis Idiaeresis
    keysym o = o O odiaeresis Odiaeresis
    keysym u = u U udiaeresis Udiaeresis
    keysym y = y Y ydiaeresis Y
    keysym s = s S ssharp NoSymbol

    ! for recognition of the umlaut setting with a grep on "xmodmap -pke":
    keycode 250 = U M L 1
    The call "xmodmap umlauts" makes German umlauts available
    instantaneously in
    OpenOffice, Firefox, and other applications, but not in gedit.

    Oracle Solaris 11.1 with gedit 2.30.4 running
    ubuntu 12.04 LTS (in VirtualBox) with gedit 3.4.1 running
    both concerned.

    How can I accomplish gedit accept these xmodmap settings?

    Btw., copying umlauts into gedit (e.g. from Firefox) is possible.

    Any help appreciated
