Public bug reported:

Affects: linux-source-2.6.15 (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

Kernel and X windows system don't support Korean/latin key(Hangul key)
default. So Korean user who want use Hangul Key set it manually like

#sudo setkeycodes 71 122
#sudo setkeycodes 72 123 

and add that key in xmodmap like.

#xmodmap -e "keycodes 210 = Hangul"
#xmodmap -3 "keycodes 209 = Hangul_Hanja"

but in Dapper it doesn't work.

I tried xev and press hangul key but it doesn't react.

and showkey command also can't give a keycodes.

#showkey -m -t 3

in Breezy it works. showkey showed like

Keycode 122 Pressed
Keycode 122 Released.

But dapper doesn't.
