We get the list of items from xkb.

Comment 2 Kristian Høgsberg 2004-11-08 21:49:03 UTC
Changing severity to enhancement.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2005-02-11 21:46:35 UTC
I beleive you can do that already using existing config file options,
however bugzilla isn't a place for technical support.

You can use the xorg@freedesktop.org mailing list and xorg-x11
manpages to determine the configuration option.

If it is not possible using existing config file options to do this,
the proper place to request a feature enhancement is in X.Org
bugzilla located at http://bugs.freedesktop.org as this is not
an OS specific feature request.

Setting status to "NOTABUG"

You are right, this is not a bug. It's a feature enhancement, and it
is marked as one.

Rather than marking the bug as "give it to someone else, we're not
interested", you should fix bugzilla. It's a waste of your bug
reporter's time to go off, register for another bugzilla and report
the bug there. Why not get your bugzilla to do it for them?

I would add this as an rfe in bugzilla, but am worried that you might
tell me to go and report it in bugzilla's bugzilla.

Oh well.
