Comment 2 Konstantin Svist 2010-08-25 17:58:40 UTC
update: crash fixed after I selected a keyboard in the settings window (selected "evdev-managed keyboard")

Comment 3 Christoph Wickert 2010-11-26 00:41:12 UTC
Does this mean the plugin *always* crashes if you are using the default settings and haven't selected a particular keyboard? Isn't "evdev-managed keyboard" selected automatically? Can you please test this with a fresh user profile?

You also might want to test the update from 

Comment 4 Konstantin Svist 2010-12-01 22:11:45 UTC
* every time none is selected, the plugin crashes when I press Close
* very often when I open the preferences dialog, there is no keyboard model selected. Just now I opened it and it had none selected. I selected Dell Laptop/notebook Inspiron 6xxx/8xxx (BTW, "evdev-managed" is no longer a listed option). Closed and reopened - the selection is still there. I suspect that after a reboot it won't be there anymore.

Will try the update asap

Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2011-06-01 14:00:28 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '13'.

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 13'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 13 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: 

Comment 10 Fedora Update System 2011-06-02 19:02:51 UTC
xfce4-xkb-plugin- has been pushed to the Fedora 15 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
