This page is for openmoko localization.

Adding UTF-8 input support to e

E input doesn't work without proper locale, therefore you must install and use a utf8 locale. I made a package that creates en_US.utf8 locale and sets it on boot time. if you have any bug fixes/suggestions please let me know. (TAsn)

Package: Locale

What it generally does:

  1. installs all dependencies
  2. installs locale-gen script (took from arch linux and removed a deprecated section)
  3. generates locales
  4. adds the locale to the system by adding a script to profile.d/locale.sh


Known issues: The correct keyboard layout should be loaded before use. Either by a hack like in: xmodmap or by proper layout loading.

for some reason xserver doesn't allocate enough key spaces for the illume keyboard, which makes the keyboard dance between keycodes, which for some reason makes the e applications go crazy. Should check and verify.
