I just bought DragonRuby and tried it on my Win/Linux box using a French keyboard. I can get the console to show up only on Windows, nothing pops up under Linux. I use exactly the same keyboard with both OSs. Any idea where the problem might come from ?

Just in case, here is the French keyboard layout :




Hmm... it's really odd that it's only on Linux that it doesn't work on.

Would you mind trying this patch and tell me what it returns?

At the top of `main.rb`:

module GTK
  class KeyboardKeys
    def self.utf_8_char raw_key
      puts "==== yay linux!"
      puts raw_key
      puts "======"
      return raw_key.chr

I'm super sorry. While typing the code, I just thought about checking the keyboard settings ( should have done that first ! ) and for whatever reason, it was set on an obsolete French variant. Setting it back to the regular setting solved the problem.

Thank you for your quick answer !
