User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7b)

Description of problem:
I wanted to add Korean layout from GNOME - keyboard - preferences.
After choosing Korean from the right list of layouts, I get something
like "XKB error". Probably you don't have Korean keymap in test3 ?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go into System Settings - Keyboard Preferences
2. Choose layouts tab, try to add Korean
3. It will give error

Actual Results:  "XKB error"

Expected Results:  "XKB error"

This might be bug 121016. Have a look at the workaround in #4.
Comment 2 Timothy Ha 2004-05-08 15:12:05 EDT
The work around with deleting a line in Xorg.conf doesn't work - since
the line just doesn't exists in a fresh Fedora 2 install (not update
of Fedora 1).
Comment 3 Nicu Buculei 2004-05-19 07:26:08 EDT

Just to be sure this is the same bug, here is the content of the
message box I see when startig Gnome:

Error activating XKB configuration.
Probably internal X server problem.

X server version data:
The X.Org Foundation

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

And here are the results of what is asked by the box:

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 = [ca_enhanced,us]
 model = pc105
 overrideSettings = false
 options = []

I have the same bug with Korean and Swiss German/French.
I get exactly the same error msg from Adeynack

Is it now fixed?
