Accents problem in GTK 2

(1/1)

EdyKnopfler:
When I type accented letters in the IDE or in my forms, they appear duplicated: áá êê íí õõ üü ...

Searching the bugtracker, I found this: http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=15688

It seems to be a GTK2 problem, in the CheckDeadKey procedure (lcl/interfaces/gtk2/gtk2proc.inc).

I tried to comment out such code and replace the call by a single call to gtk_im_context_filter_keypress. It solved the duplication problem but I can't type an accent key (a dead key) in one control, and after type the letter in other control. It's not a big problem to me, but it's a pattern in applications behavior.

Does anybody know how can I contact someone in the development  team and talk about this? I'd like to help to improve the GTK2 support, but I'm a newbie about this...

You can contact developers on Lazarus mailing list: http://lists.lazarus.freepascal.org/mailman/listinfo/lazarus
You can fill the bugreport (or reopen the mentioned one, if you think it's a regression).
