Description of problem:
I have these options in the "Keyboard" section of my XF86Config-4 file:
However some of them are get ignored. The most annoying is that
XkbOption "grp:xxx" gets ignored.
What I have in the log about Xkb is this:
(**) Option "XkbLayout" "ru"
(**) XKB: layout: "ru"
(==) Keyboard: CustomKeycode disabled
And switching between the default and ru keymap doesn't work.
However simply executing `setxkbmap -option "grp:ctrl_shift_toggle"`
makes the switching to work correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put the specified above options to XF86Config-4
4.Press Ctrl+Shift and type something to ensure that swithing doesn't work
Actual Results: English characters are typed
Expected Results: Cyrillic characters are typed
XFree86-4.2.0-6.47 from Rawhide.
setxkbmap -option "grp:ctrl_shift_toggle" makes switching to work.
Defering for future.
But the inability of specifying "grp" means that the one simply can't use
the layout switching, which is quite, hmm, fatal.
My question is: is it reproduceable for you (and then for the rest of the
or it is only my local configuration problem? If it is a local problem, I
think I can track it down myself, I just have to know this.
Sorry for that report, I've figured out
how to do that XFree-4 way.
How can I change the resolution to "NOTABUG"?
