Keyboard Problems Fedora FC5

I just completed installation of FC5, and being in Montreal, Canada, did it with the Canadian French Keyboard,

The keyboard is selected during the install setup.

Well, it works for the regular keys, but not for the alternate character keys.

Thus, I do not have access to @, or some other accented characters such as Nel etc or the Euro symbol.

There is an altChar on the right side, next to the space bar, and before the Windoz popup button.


Is there a parameter file that I can locate that maps the keyboard character sequence to an ISO character.

The Fedora Core4 keyboard handler works just fine. It is with Fedora Core 5 for Gnome and KDE that I am having the problem. I will try it as well in the terminal mode for the next email, as I am on a laptop, far away from the afflicted machine.
