when in the terminal and I press the 'å' character on the virtual-keyboard I get another character. it's an 'a' with a sad mouth on top instead of a round one. peace!

This should be fixed in ,

But seems the layout file is not updated during update, ./home/nemo/.config/FingerTerm/finnish.layout says 0xc2 to me.

Delete this file (Fingerterm version >= 1.1.12)

rm ./home/nemo/.config/FingerTerm/finnish.layout

And it will be re-created when terminal is started, and you can stargate again

Older versions, manually edit this file with change described here:

(If you mess it up, just delete the file, and it will be respawned on fingerterm start)

It worked!! Thank you Kimmoli!

No, wait.. I need to change the config file. ./home/nemo/.config/FingerTerm/finnish.layout 'å' needs to be 0xc5 not 0xc2. If I remove the config file I'm back to the sad mouth 'â'

eh. depends what is your fingerterm version. That is fixed from 1.1.12 and upwards

Just to straighten things up... ;)

Someone who wants Swedish keyboard layout? Copy finnish.layout, rename it swedish.layout and fix the above "å" error.

Then edit the ./home/nemo/.config/FingerTerm/settings.ini.

Line 38 should be keyboardLayout=swedish.

...Or you could just use the Finnish layout. ;)

... it should be å also in finnish layout, not â

@kimmoli - Of course! I forgot to tell.
