Description Doncho Gunchev 2007-04-29 13:33:04 EDT
Description of problem:
When I use system-config-keyboard it puts 'bg' in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard, 
which is not a valid keyboard map.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
run it and select Bulgarian

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cat /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
2. run system-config-keyboard and select Bulgarian
3. cat /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
There are two layouts in use - BDS and Phonetic. These keyboard maps 
are /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/bg_bds-utf8.map.gz 
and /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/bg_pho-utf8.map.gz.

Is 'Bulgarian (Phonetic)' and 'Bulgarian (BDS)' acceptable? If I can make a
patch will it help? In xorg.conf a new line with '"XkbVariant" ",phonetic"' is
also needed for the Bulgarian (Phonetic) layout.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2007-05-16 12:58:14 EDT
Please try the next rawhide tree that has rhpl-0.206-1 in it and let me know if
this works better for you then.

In text and graphic (x11) mode with fully update F7t4 it works as expected
(/etc/sysconfig/keyboard and /etc/X11/xorg.conf).

'Bulgarian (Phonetic)' (Българска (Фонетична)) is not translated and shows up in
English in the GUI, which places it near the bottom of the list (why sort).
'Bulgarian' (Българска) is on the top. I can not translate this, the .po file is
not updated.

$ system-config-keyboard
Loading /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/bg_bds-utf8.map.gz
loadkeys: warning: this map uses Unicode symbols
    (perhaps you want to do `kbd_mode -u'?)

Both problems do not exist in text mode. 'Bulgarian (Phonetic)' is not
translated, but it is just below the Bulgarian (Българска) keyboard layout.
Comment 5 Doncho Gunchev 2007-05-19 07:58:33 EDT
Ops, a side effect. If I use the phonetic variant and run system-config-display
and select 'Bulgarian (Phonetic)' again my input is switched to 'Bulgarian'
(Bulgarian BDS). The configuration file for X11 is also a bit wrong - it is:

        Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "us,bg"
        Option      "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led"
        Option      "XkbVariant" "phonetic"

while it should be:

        Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "us,bg"
        Option      "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led"
        Option      "XkbVariant" ",phonetic"

The 'phonetic' option is not for 'us' and needs a comma infront.

rhpl-0.208-1 is OK. Thank you!
