Description Gerard Fernandes 2004-06-26 07:41:19 EDT
Description of problem: Installed "Workstation" with KDE. Installed 2
languages - English (default) and Portuguese (additional).
Am able to switch languages in GNOME through the switch keyboard
applet - however GNOME is very unusable because it applies keyboard
layout PER WINDOW and therefore requires a restart of the Application
before the keyboard switch is effective.

KDE (in FC-1) could easily switch with one click on the Keyboard
Layout Switcher Panel applet.

KDE (in FC-2) does not show additional languages in the Keyboard
Preferences applet.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KDE 3.2.2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install typical "Workstation" from FC-2 DVD
2. In customise packages, select KDE
3. Select English as default and add Portuguese as additional Language.
4. Install
5. Log in as a normal User into KDE
6. Go to the KDE control center
7. Go to Keyboard configuration
8. Enable multiple Keyboard Layouts
7. Attempt to add multiple keyboard layouts - No options displayed.
Actual results:
A list of available Keyboard Layouts should be displayed

Expected results:
On selection of available layouts, switching should be possible with
the Keyboard Layout switching applet.
