Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 321501
F8t3 no keyboard models, layouts and variants in gnome-keyboards-properties
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:17 EST
Description of problem:
In F8t3 there are not layouts and keyboard variants to select in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Systenm -> Preferences -> Hardware -> Keyboard -> Layouts
2. try to select keyboard model (Unknown by default) - there is nothing
3. +Add Layouts or Variants - the lists are empty
It efectively prevents usage of any other keyboard layout than US.
I consider this as major loss of functionality.
At least the same selection as in F7.
Tested on LiveCD and after installation from LiveCD.
I cannot reproduce the problem.
I see the same lists as always.
What version of xkeyboard-config do you have ?
Moving to F8Blocker for further investigation.

Matthias -- I see this reliably with live CDs but also don't get it on my
laptop. So I suspect it's something about fresh installs vs not. The duped bug
has a screenshot (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=218881) of the
errors on the tty gnome-keyboard-properties is launched from.
There was indeed a problem in with markup in translations in
xkeyboard-config-1.1-1.fc8, but that should be fixed in 1.1-2.fc8.
That is why I want to know what version of xkeyboard-config this problem has
been seen with.
This is F8T3 with xkeyboard-config-1.1-1.fc8. After update to current
development xkeyboard-config-1.1-3.fc8 problem seems fixed. If this gets into F8
then please close the bug. Thanx
