User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050512 Red Hat/1.0.4-1.4.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
When I try to add the French Canadian Basic keyboard layout using gnome-keyboard-properties, I get an error message and it is impossible to switch to the French keyboard layout.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
control-center-2.8.0-12

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnome-keyboard-properties;
2. Select the "Layouts" tab;
3. Drop down the "French Canadian" list;
4. Select "Basic" and click "Add"
  

Actual Results:  Error activating XKB configuration.
Probably internal X server problem.

X server version data:
The X.Org Foundation
60802000

If you report this situation as a bug, please include:
- The result of xprop -root | grep XKB
- The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb


Expected Results:  Added French Canadian Basic keyboard layout.

Additional info:

$ xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xorg", "pc105", "us", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xorg", "pc105", "us", "", ""
$ gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb
 layouts = [us,ca_enhanced      basic]
 model = pc105
 overrideSettings = false
 options = [grp grp:alts_toggle]
 update_handlers = []
