#15522 closed defect (cantfix)

Impossible to write { } curly brackets on italian keyboards

Reported by: wesley Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.10.7 Keywords:


hello, with an italian keyboard, in any pidgin chat window, on windows (and probably on linux... not tested) it's impossible to write curly braces

target keys combination is

Ctrl + Alt + Shift + the two keys you see in the image

should work also

[ CtrlLeft? OR CtrlRight?] + [ Alt OR AltGr? ] + [ ShiftLeft? OR ShiftRight?] + the two keys you see in the image

any of these combinations are perfectly valid and working usually everywhere

thank you in advance

You're experiencing a limitation in the GTK+ input handling that's unfortunately out of our control.

This is caused by this upstream GTK+ bug.
