Comment 1 Gabor Nagy 2004-05-30 05:23:42 EDT
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.
Comment 2 Attila Balazs 2004-06-07 18:11:08 EDT
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 ? :)
Comment 3 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2004-06-07 18:57:48 EDT
IIRC Hungarian layout in XFree/XOrg was not combinable with others.
Sorry for that. (XKeyboardConfig fixed it). Did you try to use _only_
Comment 4 Gabor Nagy 2004-06-08 02:13:19 EDT
Same problem...
Some observations:
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?)
Comment 5 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2004-06-08 05:25:09 EDT
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.
Comment 6 Gabor Nagy 2004-06-09 01:54:53 EDT
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
Loading /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/hu101.map.gz
* running ['/usr/X11R6/bin/setxkbmap', '-layout', 'hu_qwerty',
'-model', 'pc105', '-option', '']

For me it is a workaround now.
Comment 7 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2004-06-09 05:42:20 EDT
You can use Hungarian. But you cannot mix it with other layouts IIRC.
Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2005-04-22 02:12:34 EDT
*** Bug 151737 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 9 Matthias Clasen 2006-08-28 21:53:00 EDT
According to comment #3, the switch to xkeyboard-config should have fixed the
problem of combining hungarian with other layouts.
