Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 550985
keyboard not working in qemu
Last modified: 2010-12-03 20:08:55 EST
Description of problem:
while trying to reinstall xp on a qemu virtual disk, i dscovered that i have no
keyboard input. restarting qemu with
gave me back the keyboard. the behaviour reminds me of this bug
however, i don't _know_ if it's libgxim or something else broken here.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q libgxim
$ rpm -q qemu
Steps to Reproduce:
XIM support on imsettings has been disabled by default. if you have modified something to keep imsettings-applet running, try killing it. otherwise it's not libgxim fault.
i ain't done anything special about imsettings, but the user account was used on previous fedora versions (starting with f8), so here's what i've found so far:
$ ps aux | grep -i im
USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TTY STAT START TIME COMMAND
root 1502 0.0 0.1 7680 2816 ? S 07:55 0:00 /usr/libexec/gdm-simple-slave --display-id /org/gnome/DisplayManager/Display1 --force-active-vt
guzu 1800 0.0 0.1 15676 3472 ? S 07:58 0:00 /usr/libexec/im-settings-daemon
guzu 2032 0.0 0.0 5300 2036 ? S 07:58 0:00 /usr/libexec/gconf-im-settings-daemon
guzu 2339 0.0 0.0 4208 744 pts/0 S+ 08:12 0:00 grep -i im
could be that it's something inherited from previous fedora versions? if so, how can i disable these settings?
No. those processes are irrelevant to libgxim. reassigning to qemu then.

thank you very much.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
