Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186692
Option "XkbLayout" fails to handle "us+ru" properly
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:32 EDT
Description of problem:
When setting Option "XkbLayout" to something like "LANG+LANG" (for example
"us+ru") - it doesn't work as expected
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find "InputDevice" section of xorg.conf:
2. Set Option "XkbLayout" "us+ru(winkeys)"
3. Set Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
4. Set Option "XkbOptions" "grp:rwin_toggle"
5. start XWindow
6. Try to type something in any application
Keyboard layout is always Russian (in case of "us+ru") or always English (in
case of "ru+us") and it is NO WAY to switch language.
Language/Layout can't be switched by RWIN key.
The default layout should be English.
When pressing RWIN key - layout should be shitched to Russian.
Also other layout combinations such as "us+ru(winkeys)" doesn't work.
Please report this issue to X.Org developers by filing a bug report in
the X.Org bugzilla located at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg"
Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new
bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the
centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that
become available for consideration in future updates.
Setting status to "NEEDINFO_REPORTER", awaiting X.Org bug URL
Closing bug "INSUFFICIENT_DATA" as no upstream bug URL has been provided
for tracking purposes. If the issue has been reported upstream, feel free
to provide the URL here and we will track it.
It should actually be reported against "xkeyboard-config" upstream rather
than "xorg" as indicated above.
