Hi,

I have the same problem with Mathematica 5.0.1 on Fedora
(on Red Hat it worked fine): the brackets *are* produced, but
always with a beep!

I wrote to Technical Support, and they suggested as a workaround
to redefine the KeyEventTranslation so that the brackets can
be produced with Mod2:

<http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/systems/unix/interface/brackets.html>

I can now input brackets with e.g. Super_R ("Windows key") + 7
(no beep!),
but I am *not* happy with this solution...

Any suggestions?
Or does anybody know why it worked with Red Hat but not on Fedora?

Regards,
Marcus
