X keyboard configuration and euro symbol
First off - Slackware is cool.
Now, within the "/etc/X11/XF86Config". When I specify Option "XkbSymbols" "gb" , I get an error whenever I startx. It tells me that xkbcomp can't load the file "gb" for geometry include (or something along those lines). I thought I should maybe add a specific geometry file to the Options, but no joy... I took a look at the "gb" file in /etc/X11/xkb/symbols and decided to change the option to Option "XkbSymbols" "gb(basic)" but to no avail. The same error message (filename changes, of course).
The reason I'm mucking around with this stuff is because I'm trying to configure my keyboard to show a Euro symbol (€) whenever I press "AltGr + 4". I know the AltGr key works with the current setup because I get output with various keystrokes. I know the font I'm using has a Euro symbol in it because I edited one into a text file in console and viewed it in X. I did try xmodmap and when I used the option -pke, saw "EuroSign" specified on the correct key, but still no output when I hit the keys.
I've done a search here and through XFree86's documentation, but can't see where I'm going wrong... Maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree altogether. Has anyone else managed to get a Euro symbol in their X session? Any pointers?
