I have a UK keyboard. When I check in thhe keybaord setting thing it says
UK - but it types as US.
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
This is still here, on 2 UK keyboard systems. I log in to 'gnome and X disagree
on keyboard type'
Maybe I just don't understand the interrelation betweeen them, but it is
VERY annoyimg. Often I end up with the wrong keyboard.
What detailed info should I post please?
My X config file has this section (for a us keyboard, obviously):
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
What do you have in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf?
xorg.conf has a section:
# generated from data in "/etc/sysconfig/keyboard"
Option "XkbLayout" "gb"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
While in "/etc/sysconfig/keyboard" I have:
Ah...is it UK & GB getting mixed up?
Sounds likely. Not sure how that happened, but try changing them to match?
