Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2011-09-14 14:36:03 CEST
See Issue 12575. This is what happens:

* udiaresis is sent over VNC

* Xvnc uses the Swedish layout by default, which does not contain udiaeresis. It contains dead_diaeresis, though, so Xvnc till send dead_diaeresis + u. 

* rdesktop is configured to use the "de" layout over RDP. The german layout does not include dead_diaeresis, so rdesktop cannot do the right thing. 

A workaround is:

xmodmap -e "keycode 240 = udiaeresis Udiaeresis"
Comment 1 Pierre Ossman cendio 2013-04-23 11:52:53 CEST
Because of bug 4526 we now have a us layout by default. That means a proper udiaeresis will be added and rdesktop will work fine.
Comment 2 Peter Åstrand cendio 2013-05-20 15:58:02 CEST
Works now. I noticed that two different keycodes were allowcated for ü and Ü:

keycode 254 = Udiaeresis NoSymbol Udiaeresis
keycode 255 = udiaeresis NoSymbol udiaeresis

I guess this could be optimized, so that only one keycode is used. But that's probably another bug.
