Description of problem:
It is something like bug #120858... I've done every fix related that bug without success to solve this problem.
This bug comes with Hungarian layouts only.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3.try to add any Hungarian layout
4.an error dialog appears with the error message in bug #120858
Actual Results: An error dialog appears with the error message in bug #120858
Expected Results: add the Hungarian to the active layouts
I am after an upgrade from FC1 to FC2
Same here, but I had a clean FC2 install not an upgrade. Also tried
all from bug #120858.
The other layouts are Ok, but not the Hungarians.
I had a clean install and also experinced the same. The only workout
were i i set up the hungarian layout as default. (Have you ever
attempted to operate a *nix computer with hu layout ? :)
IIRC Hungarian layout in XFree/XOrg was not combinable with others.
Sorry for that. (XKeyboardConfig fixed it). Did you try to use _only_
If I use Gnome via VNC, everything looks fine. However the right-click
popup menu on the applet is different, so does the coming up keyboard
properties, and the applet looks different: it shows the national
flags instead of simply the textual name of the country.
So I guess it is some path problem that the X that VNC uses handless
well. (Or the VNC startup sets the paths correctly?)
Hehe:) VNC does not have XKB extension. In this case gnome keyboard
indicator falls back to the old gkb-new code - which has completely
different UI etc etc. So everything is working as expected - new code
is working for XKB only. Patches to add support for xmodmap to
libxklavier are mostly welcome.
I do not know how much it helps, but with system-config-redhat I can
switch the default layout to Hungarian, and it works properly.
[root@home_desktop xkb]# system-config-keyboard
* running ['/usr/X11R6/bin/setxkbmap', '-layout', 'hu_qwerty',
'-model', 'pc105', '-option', '']
For me it is a workaround now.
You can use Hungarian. But you cannot mix it with other layouts IIRC.

According to comment #3, the switch to xkeyboard-config should have fixed the
problem of combining hungarian with other layouts.
