Description Luigi Tarenga 2007-12-07 13:11:02 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/20071128 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
from many years linux console can work with the "it2" keymap
a sligthy modified italian layout. i saw that xorg is still missing
a it2 layout so i created the /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/it2 file.

to see what the it2 is all about just check this:
zcat /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/it2.map.gz |head -n 40

Note: it2 is just a logical layout, and is slighty different from the
physical one.

it2.map.gz give also some wrong indication on how to use it2 under X
(it seems that has been written on 1995!)

maybe the it2 layout is not much used but i think that it make no sense
to be able to select it from system-config-keyboard and then not be able
to use is under xorg.

with the file i created a user can select it in xorg.conf:
Option "XkbLayout" "it2"

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run system-config-keyboard
2. select it2
3. switch to the tty1 and see that the layout is "it2" while you
can't have the same basic layout with X

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Have you tried submitting this to xkeyboard-config upstream?

Please file a bug there, attach your layout and reference the new bug from here. This way we can track upstream process on this.
