Package name xkeyboard-config
Date April 30th, 2008
Advisory ID MDVA-2008:055
Affected versions 2008.1
Synopsis Updated xkeyboard-config packages fix Finnish keyboard layout

Problem Description

Mandriva Linux 2008.1 introduced an improved Finnish default keyboard
layout called Kotoistus. This layout adds altgr-space as a key
combination for non-breaking space. However, that key combination can
be easily hit accidentally when a normal space was intended instead,
especially after typing the pipe character. This update removes the
new key combination. Non-breaking space can still be typed via the
traditional combination altgr-shift-space.
