BUG: Problem getting special characters in emacs-app 23.0.0_NS-9.0rc1
|Reported by:||flips@…||Owned by:||css@…|
I'm having trouble getting characters like ~, | and \ (tilde, pipe and backslash) to show in Emacs.app. I'm using a MacBook Pro with a Norwegian Apple keyboard. And to get these characters I have to use the "Alt" key (which is the same as the "option"/"meta" key). When I press Alt+the key with the hat and double dots, I usually get ~, but in Emacs.app I get this showing in the minibuffer: "<M-268632064> is undefined".
Usually I have to press Alt+7 to get "pipe" and Shift+Alt+7 to get "backslash", but that doesn't work in Emacs.app. For Alt+7, it just shows "M-7" in the minibuffer. And for Shift+Alt+7 something weird happens, not shure what, but I think this is the output from that command:
Scanning ` *Echo Area 0*' Scanning ` *Echo Area 1*' dabbrev-expand: No dynamic expansion for `k5
Maybe there's some settings I'm missing, or maybe it's something that should be fixed in the code, I don't know.
My version is: emacs-app 23.0.0_NS-9.0rc1, aqua/emacs-app (Variants: universal, darwin_8)
I seem to have the same problems in Aquamacs, if that's relevant info somehow. (It says "M-¨ is undefined" when I try to get ~ to work.)
And BTW, those people designing the Norwegian version of the apple keyboard, they really did a poor job (at least for us *nix people).
