Description

Currently, file /usr/share/X11/locale/el_GR.UTF-8/Compose does not allow a user to enter Greek letters with tonos and/or dialytika.
This are marks that go above letters and are part of the Greek script. It seems the problem occurs because OI is using a buggy
Compose file from the Oracle Solaris distribution. Instead, it is necessary to use a file like the following one:

https://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/lib/libX11/plain/nls/el_GR.UTF-8/Compose.pre?id=libX11-1.5.0

This file is not directly usable since one has to replace all XCOMM strings with a #. But making this
change is a task of trivial difficulty, I cannot be 100% sure, but it is quite possible that other such Compose
files might be buggy.

History

#1

Updated by Aurélien Larcher almost 4 years ago

As discussed with Apostolos, Compose patches from X11 gate seem to be the issue and should be deprecated as upstream did.

Can we do it before 2016.10?
