Keyboard issues

Post by mischalke » Wed Jul 05, 2017 10:08 am

Dear all,

I am currently running Wine 1.8 (just upgraded from 1.2 - I know it's not the most recent version but fine for me as I am mainly using word and some accounting software) on Linux Mint Cinnamon 13.4.

I am using a German keyboard layout as a default under Linux Mint, however, I cannot use this in the WINE environment. WINE only seems to use the English keyboard layout which means I cannot write certain special characters.

WINE has been working fine for me for about two years, but since a few weeks ago refused to write any special characters.
I have tried the forum search here but couldn't find any meaningful solution. I understand that WINE uses the default keyboard layout, i.e. it should use the German one I use under Linux Mint, but it doesn't.

Any ideas or hints would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.
Marcus
