    Post vnc keyboard problem

    This is a very sticky one
    We have several Suse-servers, suse8.1,suse10.1,suse10.2,suse10.3 and everyone serves ok as vncservers.
    Now.. after installing opensuse11.0 I've got a really sticky keyboardproblem for vncviewersessions.
    I'm using a swedish keyboard with keys ň,ń,÷ where am. keyboard ha }{|.
    If I enter any of them as the very first klick after vncsession up I'll get response on my xterm. The other two will not work and in vnc log file I get
    KbdAddEvent: unknown KeySym 0xf6 - allocating KeyCode 8
    KbdAddEvent: unknown KeySym 0xe4 - allocating KeyCode 93
    KbdAddEvent: unknown KeySym 0xe5 - allocating KeyCode 124

    for each keystroke on ňń÷ even the first one.
    If I enter any other key as the first one (ex M) no one of ňń÷ will function and the same log will be written.
    I've tried different viewers, tightvnc,ultravnc,realvnc and even different servers.
    I've also upgraded suse11.0 xorg-x11-Xvnc-7.3-110.1 to 7.4-17.3.
    Same problem
    On console everything works fine.
    Please help, I'm out of ideas ..

    Hi Benny,

    Bringing this old thread to life to ask if you ever found a solution to your problem. I am facing the exact same issue.
