Option "XkbLayout" "us+inet" causes impossible question from gnome
Last modified: 2008-04-11 15:01:42 EDT
Description of problem:
system-config-display seems to unconditionally set the keyboard to "us+inet" on
"plain" keyboards. Previously it was set to "us".
I haven't found this change described anywhere. If this report doesn't serve any
other purpose it will at least document the change.
Is the change intentional?
kbd(4) suggests using "us" and doesn't list "us+inet" which thus is
undocumented. So what does it mean? Extended keyboard with "email" button etc?
When starting gnome with a new value of this setting a very confusing and
impossible-to-guess question is asked. If the change is intentional, then
automatic migration for gnome should be made.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
remove xorg.conf and start system-config-display or otherwise trig a reconfig
Fixed in F9, the keyboard defaults are done elsewhere.
