I have a Latvian(apostrophe) keyboard layout.
Somewhere around kde 5.20 the behaviour of the apostrophe(") key changed.
Some context: In my language there are accented characters (ā ē ī etc.) and to access them I need to press
'(apostrophe key, no shift) and the letter to get the accented variant.
And around KDE version 5.19 pressing
shift and the apostrophe key resulted in the quote symbol (
"), and no special treatment.
But, after a recent update (5.20 or 5.21 on kde plasma) it changed.
Now, no matter if I press the key with or without the shift it toggles the
accented mode, witch is quite annoying for programming.
Shift+" abc results in
ābc (notice that for the same inputs, it ignored the quote alltogether and just accented the character)
Shift+" Shift+" results in
"" (two quotes)
" (single quote, and the next character that I type will be accented)
I would guess that this is a problem of some package that handles layouts, but because of the amount of packages that changed before my live USB(where the old(desired) behaviour happens) and now, I am am unsure where to start.
