xkb maps not working with updated 1.9 release
Last modified: 2010-10-08 08:42:17 EDT
Description of problem:
I think there is some problem with xkeyboar-config-1.9-1.fc14 package. When I installed previous version build 1.8.1-6.fc13, its working fine.
While adding few xkb maps from India say Hindi Wx, Hindi Bolnagari, I got following error message
Error activating XKB configuration.
It can happen under various circumstances:
• a bug in libxklavier library
• a bug in X server (xkbcomp, xmodmap utilities)
• X server with incompatible libxkbfile implementation
X server version data:
If you report this situation as a bug, please include:
• The result of xprop -root | grep XKB
• The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd
Here is output for "xprop -root | grep XKB"
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "evdev", "pc105+inet", "us", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "evdev", "pc105+inet", "us", "", "grp:shift_caps_toggle"
Here is output for "gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd"
layouts = [us,in bolnagri]
options = [grp grp:shift_caps_toggle]
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select India as country while adding new keymap
2. Try to add Hindi Bolnagri map
3. Observe error message after you clicked on "Add" button
Unable to use or select maps in panel
Should add maps without error message and able to change and use them
For now adding F14Target.
Upstream has already fixed this in upstream commit
I believe this affects any layout that includes symbols/nbsp (non-break space).
