Description
dear kylix,

i've got kyllix 3.0 for linux
into the C++ IDE edit window, kylix doesn't recognize the italian keyboard
it's impossible to write the character:
'#', '@', '[', ']', '{', '}'
with the italian keyboard this charcters are produced as follow:
'#': <alt gr> `
'@': <alt gr> r
'[': <alt gr> h
']': <alt gr> +
'{': <alt gr> <shift> h
'}': <alt gr> <shift> +
or also is possible press the <alt gr> and then input the ascii decimal code on numeric pad
into the other linux application (using one of this way) it's possible to input this character

is there a solution?
the kylix requirement sheet did not say that kylix run only on americam keyboard

my system data:
kernel version: 2.4.22
linux distribution: slackware 9.1
kde version: 3.1.4 language: english

thak you and best regards

Steps to Reproduce:
- don't need any steps
- just use a pc with an intalian keyboard and the regional setting set to italian
