I've just installed new Fedora 15 Beta and I'm facing a problem which I haven't faced in Alpha version. I'm not sure if I would be able to describe the problem, so I will use screenshots.

This is an example menu bar taken from Firefox: Firefox menu bar

As you can see, I can use <Alt> + <Z> to get to Zakladki menu (it's Bookmarks in English). However, in Poland we use <Alt> + <Z> to get special polish letter ż (same goes with <Alt> + {<E>, <N>, <c>}). The problem is: Fedora seems to take right <Alt> key as a shortcut key, so when I use <Alt> + <Z>, Bookmarks menu opens up. Of course I do not want it to open, I want to use my Right Alt for polish letters.

I use IBus input system, polish keyboard layout and I didn't experience any problems like this on Fedora 15 Alpha. I have no idea if does this matter, but I use wireless keyboard - Microsoft Bluetoth Keyboard 6000.

Sounds like you should report it as a bug. Against ibus component I guess? Not sure. – Robin Green Apr 27 '11 at 7:38

Go into the keyboard layout options and make Right Alt the key to choose the 3rd level.

Thank you, it worked! However, do you think I should report this as a bug (shouldn't it be default if I chosen polish layout during installation)? – Dr McKay Apr 27 '11 at 7:46
I would report this as a feature request, that certain options should be set by default for specific keyboard layouts. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Apr 27 '11 at 7:52
