Description David Balažic 2000-07-03 10:14:12 EDT
There is no support for slovene keyboard layout
in XFree86 4.0 ( the one in beta2 ).

I looked in the XF86 4.0.1 sources ( from a xfree86.org mirror,
actually I looke in the Xlib.tgz file from the linux binaries package )
and it seems that the file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/keymap/xfree86
is missing the needed entry, which should be something like this :
xkb_keymap "sl"	{
    xkb_keycodes	{ include "xfree86"		};
    xkb_types		{ include "default"		};
    xkb_compatibility	{ include "default"		};
    xkb_symbols		{ include "en_US(pc105)+sl"	};
    xkb_geometry 	{ include "pc(pc102)"		};
};
xkb_keymap "sl_SI"	{
    xkb_keycodes	{ include "xfree86"		};
    xkb_types		{ include "default"		};
    xkb_compatibility	{ include "default"		};
    xkb_symbols		{ include "en_US(pc105)+sl"	};
    xkb_geometry 	{ include "pc(pc102)"		};
};

This should be fixed in XFree86-4.0-0.30 and later.
Comment 2 David Balažic 2000-07-21 03:40:01 EDT
It partly works in beta4 ( Xfree-4.0.1-something ).
If I put  
XkbModel "pc105"
XkbLayout "si"
in XF86Config , then I get a slovenian keyboard.
But there is still no choice in the installer ( anaconda ).
Is there a GUI tool for changing the keyboard layout after
the install ?

Pinstripe : Still no choice of Slovene keyboard in anaconda.
Is there a tool to change the keyboard layout after install ?
( X11 layout , not console )

Comment 5 David Balažic 2001-03-05 12:16:55 EST
