"Er is een fout opgetreden bij het activeren van de XKB-configuratie.
Dit kan onder verschillende omstandigheden voorkomen:

- een fout in de libxklavier-bibliotheek
- een fout in de X-server (xkbcomp, xmodmap-hulpprogramma's)
- X server met incompatibele libxkbfile implementatie

X-server versiegegevens:
The X.Org Foundation

Indien u deze situatie als fout rapporteert, voegt u dan alstublieft toe:
- Het resultaat van <b>xprop -root | grep XKB</b>
 	Het resultaat van <b>gconftool-2 -R desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd</b>"

This appears to be a gnome problem as KDE does not produes this error message.

Comment 2 A. Folger 2005-08-09 07:16:52 UTC
This is a problem with the implementation of particular keyboard layouts.
Previously, this was reported regarding the ca_enhanced layout in bug #125722,
specifically in this comment

In addition, the following two layouts are also broken: de_CH and fr_CH. These
bugs are critcal for those of us with keyboards sporting the broken layouts.

The bug is, I believe, in control-center, not in xorg.

*** Bug 165420 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 4 Christian Iseli 2007-01-20 00:26:58 UTC
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?


Comment 5 A. Folger 2007-01-24 20:13:14 UTC
AFAIK the problem is solved; I didn't have any problems testing Gnome with the 
de_ch keyboard layout. Thank you.
