Comment 1 Rafael Baquero S. 2001-07-22 07:46:02 EDT
The la-latin1 keyboard can be used if you disable KDE's keyboard layout manager
and use a Xmodmap file. The following steps disable kxkb ( KDE's keyboard layout
manager ).
i) switch to directory ~/.kde/share/config
ii) If you have a file named kxkbrc open it with a text editor.
iii) Find the parameter Use and change its value from true to false.
iv) Save the file.
v) Copy the attached file named Xmodmap to ~/.Xmodmap
vi) Restart X.

You should be able to use your Latin American keyboard now but you cannot swith
to other keyboards with KDE's Control Center.

Hope this helps someone.

Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or
Fedora Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.

Closing as "CURRENTRELEASE" for now.
