Fedora 15 LXDE: Add Swiss-French keyboard layout in ibus
Last modified: 2011-07-21 22:24:50 EDT
Description of problem:
There is no French-Swiss keyboard layout available for my distribution in ibus.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
See bug upstream: http://code.google.com/p/ibus/issues/detail?id=1267
You could enable "French (Switzerland)" keymap.
1. Run ibus-setup.
2. Select [Advanced] tab.
3. Click [Add or remove layouts in 'Select an input method' list]
4. Enable [French (Switzerland)] checkbutton.
5. Restart ibus to right click on ibus status icon and choose [Restart].
6. Run ibus-setup.
7. Choose [Input Method] tab.
8. Select [Select an input method] -> [French (Switzerland)] and click [Add] button.
Currently a few french layouts only are enabled by default.
I guess "French (Switzerland)" is enough for the option.
Thank you. I will read if an answer as been made, on the ibus Google group, regarding the correct usage of ibus preference settings.

I had to add (9) French - French (Switzerland) in Keyboard layout. Is that correct?

Hmm..., quite interested.
It seems your xkeyboard-config is old.
Could you check the version and update the rpm?
% rpm -q xkeyboard-config
# yum install xkeyboard-config
And the answer is yes.

It's the default distribution with all the update. here's the commands output:
[mt@nh28d ~]$ rpm -q xkeyboard-config xkeyboard-config-2.3-2.fc15.noarch
[root@nh28d ~]# yum install xkeyboard-config

I start to get the hang of it :) thank you.
OK, I think your problem is resolved.

This would be your another bug 720567.
I wonder what happens when you rename $HOME/.cache/ibus/bus/registry.xml to anything.
I just did, thank for the suggestion. To see if there is any change.
