for everybody.

The default Turkish keyboard layout in Ubuntu is Q.

Have these problems been fixed? If so, someone should fix the
following text on the Turkish
language page.

Turkish localization presents severe problems for Sugar because Sugar
is written in the Python programming language. In the Python
programming language, case conversion is not locale-specific. This
prevents correct handling of these characters: i, I, ı, İ. (the dot is
treated much like a typical European accent, being neither added nor
removed during case conversion)

Currently the Turkish locale settings make Sugar immediately crash.
Even if this were fixed, Turkish text would still be mangled during
case conversion.
