Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 441078
Default keyboard image too small
Last modified: 2008-04-24 17:00:21 EDT
The layout editor features a picture of a keyboard, but it is too small to be
useful. None of the keys are visible.
The window size should be bigger by default to make this image useful.
This is some initialization issue. Selecting a layout from the initially unset
combo boxes fixes the display.

window that opened was totally empty, which looked weird, especially in the
place where the keyboard layout is supposed to be drawn". This bug says "The

I can reproduce *this* bug (the default size of the window [670 x 350, specified
in gnome-keyboard-properties.glade] is too small for the keyboard drawing to

It is not the same as the upsteam bug.
But I am seeing the upstream bug on my system, not this other bug you are
I believe my problem was related to the "ghost group" that we've worked around
recently. I cannot reproduce the "too small keyboard" problem unless I get the
"?" in the keyboard indicator.
I can't reproduce this with trying either.
Is the reporter still seeing it?
How can I test this? I have resized the window and it (presumably) remembers my
setting. Is the default keyboard image size now bigger?
It sounds like its fixed and I haven't seen any more reports (and tried for a
while longer today)
