I have 2007.50.2 on N810. I also live in Poland which is totally unsupported when it comes to Nokia tablets. Today I tried to make more localizations for my device to be able to enter national chars etc. The problem is that list of characters which show after 'Chr' key is pressed is not editable so I cannot add Polish national chars there. Will it be fixed or is there a way (other then replacing chars in some binary) to edit this list?
have you checked this page: http://maemo.org/development/documentation/how-tos/4-x/extending_hildon_input_methods.html
Jake: it is about how to write extension for Hildon Input Manager and I asked from user point of view. Do I really need to write code just to get possibility of entering "ĄĆĘŁŃÓŚŹŻąćęłńóśźż"? Insane...
The character lists shown when you press Chr uses the same XML file format as the virtual keyboard layouts. That format has some documentation here (search for "gen_vkb"): http://maemo.org/development/documentation/how-tos/3-x/howto_him_bora.html These special character view (scv) data files are contained in /usr/share/scv_layouts. I'm attaching here an sample XML source file you can modify, run through gen_vkb to generate a .vkb file, and install on your own device. The .vkb filename should match the language code of the hardware keyboard layout.

> The .vkb filename should match the language code of the hardware keyboard layout. Problem is that list of hardware keyboard layouts is not expandable too - bug #2899
Do I understand correctly that the list of available symbols in the scv depends only on the type of hardware keyboard? I would have excepted it to depend (also or exclusively?) on the language currently chosen. E.g. if you choose German with an English hardware keyboard, it's still useful to have "ß" on the scv.
