I have tried 32bit & 64bit binaries with my Linux Mint computers (Mint 17.3 32bit & Mint 18.1 64bit). The problem insist.
Also I have compiled from source for both of my Linux Mint distros. The problem insist.
I just installed Debian 8 32bit Mate on virtualbox to testing with ZEsarUX. The problem insist.
The keyboard have the same behavior with Debian 8 as it had with Linux Mint.
So is impossible to works right for you and wrong for me at same conditions. Are you sure works well for you?
What is wrong with me?

It does works for me. This is a stable version, not beta, and everything has been tested
Every stable version has to pass the following checks:

https://sourceforge.net/p/zesarux/code/ ... /CHECKLIST

So... try changing video driver. Try xwindows, sdl or fbdev
But as I said, it maybe depends on your keyboard configuration. I know this is not a solution, but try changing keyboard configuration to Spanish

Cheers

Spanish or default keyboard don't make any difference.
Also, I have tried --vo sdl, xwindows, fbdev, but all has the same keyboard problem.

I don't mean changing ZEsarUX keyboard type
I mean changing your Linux keyboard type configuration.

I have downloaded windows versions for testing with wine. Works great on Linux except the problem of keyboard. The problem insist.
I have a laptop with win7 and downloaded also here the zesarux for testing. The keyboard problem insist.

After reading your answer for the Spanish keyboard layout, realized that the problem was the Spanish keyboard you had used for development!
The symbol keys which I need to use, is not at the same place for you and for me. So I download a Spanish keyboard map and installed Spanish layout to my Linux box and I started tests on a simple text file first! The symbols which I needed are on 1,2,3,4 keys!
If I need the symbol " must press AltGr + 2 keys! Very nice, is very tricky for me but is a solution, yes? NO!!!
Under ZEsarUX emulator the AltGr key is dead, so the special symbol characters can't represented!
Can I hope to a future international (US) version?
:(

Keyboard-configuration mapping is a nightmare. It should be standarized only one international keyboard for everyone. I don't even like Spanish keyboard.
What I do know is ZEsarUX has been tested by U.K. users and these symbols work for them.
Sorry but I can't do anything more with your issue
Cheers

By the way, have you tried fbdev driver in a pure text console? (Ctrl alt F1 for example). This way the keyboard is raw mapping so no keyboard configuration is done and it should work for any qwerty keyboard in the world....

I tested also with US/UK/ES keyboards. fbdev, sdl, xwindows, curves. Nothing works.
I tried everything with many computers, different OS and different keyboards and drivers.
So the issue is not mine.

Anybody else can confirm, if the keyboard special symbols represented as it should under QL emulation mode?

P.S. If you want to have the symbols - + = \ ; : ' " / ? [ ] { } what keys must press to your keyboard at QL mode?

Fbdev key codes follow this specification
http://www.win.tue.nl/~aeb/linux/kbd/scancodes-1.html

There's no language conversion here. Keyboard is read in raw mode. So if you have run the fbdev not inside the x graphic server, and on a pure text console... if it still doesn't work for you, it's very strange. Maybe you have a keyboard that doesn't follow the keyboard standard. I don't know
If you know C programming maybe you can debug the keyboard codes and try to fix it by yourself... ZEsarUX is open source ;)
