Description of problem:
It would be fine if kbdconfig can also modify X configuration
(as mouseconfig with --modifyx option)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Does the new keyboard tool do this?
Yes it does. It modifies /etc/sysconfig/keyboard and /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 for
the new keyboard layout. It also calls setxkbmap and loadkeys to load the new
keymap for the console and the current X session.
However, it currently modifies the XF86Config-4 file manually. It would be nice
to use Alex's new XFree86 library to do the modfication instead of hvaing the
file intelligence inside redhat-config-keyboard.
Also, redhat-config-keyboard does not currently have a text mode interface.
Once I implement that, we could replace kbdtool if we want to. notting, any
Having a text mode tool would be good, yes.
I meant on replacing kbdconfig altogether.
If we have a new text tool, sure.
A text mode now exists for redhat-config-keyboard. Just run it with
'redhat-config-keyboard --text'. It will default to text mode if an X server
isn't currently available as well. This should resolve this bug report.
redhat-config-keyboard-1.0.1-7 should be in Rawhide now.
