Description Michal Hlavinka 2008-09-26 05:56:14 EDT
Description of problem:
In KDE - system settings - Regional & Language - Keyboard layout - keyboard model combobox : "Evdev-managed keyboard" should be selected as default value, because it's only value working with new xorg server using evdev (at least with usb keyboard, not tested with a ps/2 keyboard).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 10 Beta

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.In system settings - Regional & Language - Keyboard layout
2.Create keyboard layouts "as usual" (just add desired layouts)
Actual results:
Keyboard stops working (arrows, home/end/...)

Expected results:
Keyboard works

Additional info:
Not tested with ps/2 keyboard, but AFAIK no usb keyboard (includes some laptops) works with setxkbmap -model something_else_then_evdev ...

(In reply to comment #1)
In F9 there was the same problem for some time, but update of xorg-x11-server to 1.5.0-2.fc9 (with xserver-1.5.0-no-evdev-keyboards-kthnx.patch) should be fixing this (at least for me - in F9 -model pc104 (and others) is working, but -model evdev stopped working).

Evdev driver in F10 stays and works (see feature wiki in description)
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2008-09-27 05:22:21 EDT
Should be fixed in kde-settings-4.0-28.fc10 which is now building and should hit Rawhide once it unfreezes after the beta.
Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2008-09-29 08:50:06 EDT
Should be fixed in Rawhide now, please reopen if this is still an issue with the current kde-settings.
