Description Peter Robinson 2007-08-15 11:46:33 UTC
Not sure if this is xorg/gnome or some other component so filing under the xorg-x11-server to start with and its not specific to the xorg-x11-drv-i810 driver as I wouldn't think this is display driver specific. When I remove my xorg.conf file so the display is auto detected and configured (using the new intel driver) the X server defaults to the US layout without properly setting the keyboard. GNOME already knows what this setting is because if I go into the System->Administration->Keyboard utility the United Kingdom keyboard is already selected. All I have to do is click on it and click OK and the UK keyboard works fine. Without a config file X should probably be able to get the keyboard config from the desktop env so they keyboard can be properly set as this could cause login issues with passwords prior to login etc.

Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue. Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below. Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please. We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information. Thanks in advance.

Created attachment 161725 [details] xorg.log file with no xorg.conf file Attached is the log file. As the problem occurs when there is no xorg.conf file I can't attach one as it doesn't exist.
Comment 3 Peter Robinson 2008-03-26 10:28:05 UTC
Updating this to rawhide as its still an issue
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 03:07:32 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA. More information and reason for this action is here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

FYI, xorg-x11-server-126.96.36.1996-4 (rawhide) and later read the configuration from /etc/sysconfig/keyboard and apply the layout automatically.

(In reply to comment #0) > GNOME already knows what this setting is because if I go into the > System->Administration->Keyboard utility the United Kingdom keyboard is already > selected. All I have to do is click on it and click OK and the UK keyboard works > fine. The keyboard switcher in gnome works again with 1.5.0. This is persistent and should thus solve the issue described by the original reporter. For F10, the keyboard layout is also read from /etc/sysconfig/keyboard at startup.
