Description Arenas Belon, Carlo Marcelo 2000-08-05 03:17:14 EDT
you would need to manually edit /etc/X11/XF86Config* as kbdconfig just does
console keyboard configuration (/etc/sysconfig/keyboard)

mouseconfig DO care
Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-06 16:30:51 EDT
run kbdconfig first, Xconfigurator second
Comment 2 Arenas Belon, Carlo Marcelo 2000-08-28 09:36:54 EDT
Xconfigurator doesn't change the keyboard layout when console keyboard layout is
latin-1 (XF4 mga driver)

also, as weird as it sounds, with the same "keyboard" device configuration the
AltGr key doesn't work on runlevel 5 but does on runlevel3/startx
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-30 16:19:35 EDT
"latin-1"? No such choice...
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-10-04 11:45:30 EDT
Closed for lack of user feedback...  running Xconfigurator after kbdconfig
should work,
Comment 5 Arenas Belon, Carlo Marcelo 2000-10-17 13:40:06 EDT
sorry, i couldn't found a corresponding latin-1 keyboard map for X
for any matching kbdconfig and X name running kbdconfig and then Xconfigurator
should work as you explained.
