Patch to add the three missing keyboard arrangements none

Description Alexandru Szasz 2008-06-07 05:53:16 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #450380 +++

Description of problem:

system-config-keyboard has only one arrangement in the keyboard list for the
Romanian language. We have two standardized arrangements and two obsolete
arrangements. The list should have these names in it:

Romanian
Romanian (Standard)
Romanian (Cedilla)
Romanian (Standard Cedilla)

These are the equivalent commands for setting the keyboards according to the list:

setxkbmap ro
setxkbmap ro std
setxkbmap ro cedilla
setxkbmap ro std_cedilla

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Fedora 9 and Fedora 10

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open system-config-keyboard
2. Scroll to Romanian
3.
  
Actual results:

There is only one entry for Romanian in the list, that sets the default keymap
defined by xkeyboard-config.

Expected results:

There should be 4 entries:

Romanian
Romanian (Standard)
Romanian (Cedilla)
Romanian (Standard Cedilla)

Hello,

Congratulations for fixing this longstanding bug !

Just a single question/idea:

Should we keep these keyboard layout denominations consistent with those in
Windows Vista, in order to avoid confusion from the non-technical users ?

FYI: actually, there is even a fifth layout, less important: Martin Poehler's
"Romanian (Legacy)", that have z and y inverted. Actually, I don't think someone
still uses this. Please see on http://www.secarica.ro

Regards,
Răzvan

I don't think legacy says anything to a romanian user (this was tested), so I
opt against keeping the names from Vista.

Only two arrangements are standard, I event thought twice before including the
wrong cedilla ones.
