I use Fedora therefore I expect things to break ;)

IMHO, the best solution is to stop using this character.  Use the dollar
sign... for fifty cents, use $0.50

I have no choice in this matter. The symbol is used to mark custom code so as not to be confused with tasks sent by our software provider.

For keyboard mapping, you'll need to change key.c to return the ASCII code
( NOT THE EBCDIC CODE! ) so that when lib5250 maps it from ASCII to
EBCDIC, it'll translate to the right thing for the iSeries to understand.

For the sake of testing, you should be able to simply "return 162" but of
course, if you change the mapping in transmaps, you need to use whichever
character you changed it to.

Interesting... I changed my XK_bracketleft to return 162 and still got a bracket. Questioning my knowledge level, I changed my (working) XK_Control_L to return 162 and got the cent symbol. That must mean the bracket is not a bracket. I'll either have to map another key or figure out what key that is. (xev said it was bracketleft and confirmed the same code that was in X11/keysymdef.h)

Thanks for the tips!
