Couple of days ago I setup a x86_64bit machine with opensuse 11.1 and LTSP 4.2 upgrading from a veeeeery old ltsp-environment, running on Debians with kernel 2.4.xx.
Main goal is running a simple X-Environment with SAP JavaGUI and after some trouble finding the right Windowmanager (I had some window positioning problems, tested a lot of WMs till openbox solved them) I thought the parts (Clients and Servers) were rockin’ …
BUT: now I’m facing a really strange thing on the clients: the comma from the numeric keypad produces nonsense, some kind of unknown special character. Numbers and the calculating symbols are fine (/, *, +, -).
Weird: running the X on the local console, guess what? Right, there it is, the comma
Even weirder: the comma-problem ONLY persists on the wonderful, glorious, perfect SAP-GUI :-. Xterms, Browser, OpenOffice are painting the comma without ending.
Same thing if I run the Gui across the net via ssh -X from the server to my local workstation (OS 10.3), again those special char instead of the comma …
The big shame: the old debian-ltsp-servers do not have this problem >:(
I grepped around, googled (okay, LTSP, xdm and sap javagui seem to be quite rare) but I have no idea what the problem could be. Why does the server its job fine locally but not over the net on the client? Does anybody has an idea?
Thanks in advance
