Description Benjamin Bagland 2008-10-02 15:21:34 EDT
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008092502 Fedora/3.0.2-1.fc10 Firefox/3.0.2

I have a french apple aliminium keyboard (the usb model not the wireless one) and the macintosh layout in gnome keyboard preferences is not working anymore.
I used to select Apple/Macintosh as a keyboard model and France as the layout, but this gives me the standard pc layout now.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. select apple/macintosh keyboard model
2. tried to type the - key, it comes out as =
Comment 1 Benjamin Bagland 2008-10-02 15:50:13 EDT
I have:

$ gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd
 layouts = [fr]
 model = macintosh
 options = [grp	grp:alts_toggle,compat	apple:badmap,ctrl	ctrl:nocaps]

and :
$ xprop -root|grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "base", "evdev", "fr", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "base", "evdev", "fr", "", "grp:alts_toggle,apple:badmap,ctrl:nocaps"

Not sure what information I can give in addition to that.

This is a problem with the current xkeyboard-config.

We must have model evdev if evdev is used for keyboard drivers otherwise some of the keys stop working. xkeyboard-config 1.4 (just released two days ago) should have the fix for that.

Thanks for the quick reply, I'll let you know when the 1.4 version hits rawhide whether this fix my problem.
Comment 4 Peter Hutterer 2008-10-13 01:07:37 EDT
1.4 is in available now, please reopen if the bug persists.
