Description Need Real Name 2008-04-05 17:28:26 EDT
control-center-2.22.0-3.fc9.i386 I cannot select a default keyboard layout. I can add new keyboards to the list of available keyboard layouts, but not click the "default" radio button.
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2008-04-06 11:01:46 EDT
For some reason, the radio buttons only work when you check the "Separate layouts" checkbox. I haven't investigated why this is.
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2008-04-06 11:22:04 EDT
It means I cant tzpe the correct characters on mz kezboard.. blocker_
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2008-04-09 16:40:23 EDT
Would you like me to: 1. Delete my profile and use a new one, meaning this bug still exists, but the bug can be closed? 2. Stick with my broken keyboard, and wait for you to fix it?
Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-04-10 10:47:26 EDT
Do whatever you need to get a functioning system. We can reproduce the problem. We shouldn't close the bug yet though.
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2008-04-10 16:36:42 EDT
Creating a new user still has a broken keyboard. I can't get a functioning system. I cannot use my keyboard to do anything useful without a pipe symbol. I can't even write an e-mail address, I have no "at" sign.
Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-04-10 17:30:34 EDT
if you check the "Separate layout for each window" check box and change your default, then do things work?
Comment 7 Need Real Name 2008-04-11 01:58:34 EDT
No, they don't. My numlock light comes on, but: * the at sign * the pipe sign * the arrow keys * tilde * square brackets do not work.
Comment 8 Need Real Name 2008-04-18 14:11:30 EDT
So, to recap, Fedora 9 can't detect my keyboard correctly even though it worked before, and it ignores any settings I make. I have two problems: 1. The system-wide setting from system-config-keyboard is ignored, but when I change it manually after every boot, it works again. When doing this I get the message: Loading /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwertz/de-latin1-nodeadkeys.map.gz so I think this needs to be added to my xorg config file (which doesn't exist, because everything is automatic, or should be..) 2. The per-user setting from that other gnome keyboard program is also ignored. I have given up with it, and am using s-c-k every time I turn on the computer now. It would be nice if I could plug in a keyboard and it worked :(
Comment 9 Need Real Name 2008-04-21 12:21:21 EDT
> if you check the "Separate layout for each window" check box and change your > default, then do things work? No. I must use s-c-k.
Comment 10 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-04-21 14:17:20 EDT
if you add the keyboard indicator applet to your panel, what groups does it show?
Comment 11 Need Real Name 2008-04-21 14:41:24 EDT
Germany eliminate dead keys. But I have used s-c-k since. I will reboot and see what it says without s-c-k.
Comment 12 Michael Monreal 2008-04-22 14:17:11 EDT
I'm also fighting with Fodora9Pre to get working "~" and "^" keys on a german keyboard for days now. Other special keys like @, €, | all work for be btw. I also see the problem described in comment #1. Using s-c-k does _not_ change anything for me bzw. The keyboard applet does not display anything different after running s-c-k, so I suppose the right keymap is loaded after all... perhaps it is just broken? Note: I tried various keyboard model and keymap combinations as well, nothing seems to work.
Comment 13 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-04-22 17:11:30 EDT
it seems that running setxkbmap in a terminal (with no other arguments) fixes this issue. This must be a problem in gnome-settings-daemon or the X server. Will debug more.
Comment 14 Need Real Name 2008-04-22 17:35:31 EDT
Running setxkbmap as root or non-root does nothing for me. My keyboard is correctly qwertz before doing anything, but the @ key with AltGr+q does not exist. Nor do the arrow keys work. Pressing delete makes me look like an idiot - it takes a screenshot...
Comment 15 Michael Monreal 2008-04-22 18:43:00 EDT
Running this does not make a difference for me either. This is a working xorg.conf section from my old system btw: Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Keyboard0" Driver "kbd" Option "XkbRules" "xorg" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" Option "XkbLayout" "de" Option "XkbOptions" "nodeadkeys" EndSection
Comment 16 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-04-23 14:25:13 EDT
can you guys attach the output of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard ?
Comment 17 Need Real Name 2008-04-23 17:53:39 EDT
Created attachment 303551 [details] output as requested
Comment 18 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 04:57:34 EDT
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
Comment 19 Peter Hutterer 2008-08-07 00:36:00 EDT
(In reply to comment #14) > My keyboard is correctly qwertz before doing anything, but the @ key with > AltGr+q does not exist. Nor do the arrow keys work. Pressing delete makes me > look like an idiot - it takes a screenshot... This is a conflict between the evdev model and pc105 model, a bug that has been fixed in rawhide. (Bug 447252) This one here looks awfully like a duplicate, can you please verify this?
Comment 20 Need Real Name 2008-09-19 18:36:14 EDT
I can't verify this due to bug 462483 - I have an unbootable box.
Comment 21 Peter Hutterer 2008-09-21 23:35:01 EDT
ok, just let us know when you can test again. I'll leave the NEEDINFO flag so we get reminded later to re-visit the bug.
Comment 22 Need Real Name 2008-10-05 06:32:23 EDT
WFM now. Thanks.
