I'm running Debian 6.0.7 (Squeeze). Normally, to get the euro symbol, I would type altgr-$ and this works fine on Ubuntu but with Squeeze when I hit those keys the cursor jumps back to the beginning of the previously typed word.
Can anyone tell me what needs setting up correctly.
Also, I'm running an application that needs to use the euro symbol and in a MySQL database that the app uses the euro symbol has been replaced by this:
speed 38400 baud; rows 35; columns 145; line = 0; intr = ^C; quit = ^\; erase = ^?; kill = ^U; eof = ^D; eol = <undef>; eol2 = <undef>; swtch = <undef>; start = ^Q; stop = ^S; susp = ^Z; rprnt = ^R; werase = ^W; lnext = ^V; flush = ^O; min = 1; time = 0; -parenb -parodd cs8 -hupcl -cstopb cread -clocal -crtscts -ignbrk -brkint -ignpar -parmrk -inpck -istrip -inlcr -igncr icrnl ixon -ixoff -iuclc -ixany -imaxbel -iutf8 opost -olcuc -ocrnl onlcr -onocr -onlret -ofill -ofdel nl0 cr0 tab0 bs0 vt0 ff0 isig icanon iexten echo echoe echok -echonl -noflsh -xcase -tostop -echoprt echoctl echoke
For what it's worth, if I type a Euro symbol on my local OS and try to copy/paste it into the Debian terminal, the same thing happens as if I tried to type the character. Also, some numbers in combination with
alt gr clear the command-line prefix temporarily and replace it with
(arg: n) where
n is some number.
alt gr + 7 gives me
alt gr + 8 gives me
