any non-default layout options of gnome-keyboard-properties generates popup error
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:18 EST
Description of problem:
I cannot select any other keybard layout option other than default without
causing the popup dialog below.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to System->Preferences->Keyboard
2.Select the Layout Options tab
3.Try to select any layout other than default radio button
A pop-up error dialog appears with the text below. Furthermore, anytime you
start gnome using startx will result in the same message. The keyboard layout
is not changed.
The keyboard layout is changed
I wiped my home directory of all config files as if the user directory was just
created and it still wouldn't change the keyboard layout. I also did
'setenforce 0' just to check it wasn't a selinux problem, but that didn't help
Here is the text in the pupup:
Error activating XKB configuration.
It can happen under various circumstances:
- a bug in libxklavier library
- a bug in X server (xkbcomp, xmodmap utilities)
- X server with incompatible libxkbfile implementation
X server version data:
The X.Org Foundation
If you report this situation as a bug, please include:
- The result of xprop -root | grep XKB
- The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd
Doesn't happen for me.
If you still see this problem in current rawhide, please reopen.
