Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 467549
Gnome's System menu contains no entry for changing keyboard layout
Last modified: 2008-10-20 13:18:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Gnome's System menu contains no entry for an utility that changes keyboard layout (system-config-keyboard).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install stock Fedora 10 rawhide and online updates as of October 18, 2008
2. Open a session with Gnome desktop environment
3. Go to System menu -> Administration
There is no entry for an utility that allows setting up the keyboard layout.
Gnome menus should contain such an entry. The same is expected in KDE's menus.
Distro should provide standard utilities for changing keyboard layout in both X and text mode (command-line and/or ncurses-based).
Thanks A LOT and sorry for my omission !
A few questions still remain:
1. I'm a daily user of Fedora for years and I didn't noticed that the keyboard setting utility is there (System>Preferences>Hardware>Keyboard). Is is wise to bury it so deep in the menus, splitting it from the language setting utility ?
2. Do we have a 100% equivalent in KDE, AND, especially, in text mode ?
What's the *canonical* way an user should set his keyboard, if he runs in default runlevel 3 ? ("Canonical" = the procedure one would write in the formal Red Hat manuals...)
