Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 538741
xset led 3 does not work
Last modified: 2018-04-11 15:31:23 EDT
Description of problem:
'xset led 3' and 'xset -led 3'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@v5218c3 REST]# rpm -qf `which xset`
Steps to Reproduce:
Just issue 'xset led 3' and 'xset -led' and warth the LED.
LED state (on/off) not changed.
LED state should change accordingly to the command issued.
Bad results observed on Dell Optiplex 745 PC, Dell Latitude D630 notebook and on home-made P4 CPU and Intel mobo based PC.
Can easily reproduce on Fedora 14.
So now I am really amazed.
It works well with up-to-date F13 for a while, I am using it on daily basis in shell script performing keyboard layout switching for fvwm.
So the bug has been re-introduced in F14? This does not sound well to me...
case "$KbdLayout" in
echo "Exec setxkbmap -model pc105 -layout cz -variant qwerty"
echo "Exec xset led 3"
echo "SetEnv KbdLayout cz-qwerty"
echo "Exec setxkbmap -model pc105 -layout us"
echo "Exec xset -led 3"
echo "SetEnv KbdLayout us"
