Description Zlatko Trajceski 2002-10-29 01:15:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021018

Description of problem:
Please add the Macedonian keyboard to the 
with the following options:
  'mk'                      : ['Macedonian', 'mk', 'pc104', ''],

But there's a problem with this setting so please I need a help here. 

This setting defines also a console keyboard and in this case it's a mk keyboard
which is iso-8859-5, but that's wrong keyboard since in RH 8.0 utf8 is the
default encoding the right keyboard is mk-utf. 
So the mk (iso5) keyborad is wrong setting and mk-utf is correct one, but this
tool insist the X and console keyboard to have the same name. Any solution to this?

Problem 2 is that XKB Macedonian keyboard needs:
Option      "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
Any idea how can I specify for that to be included in XF86Config when I select
the Macedonian keyboard in redhat-config-keyboard?

Thanks a lot in advance.

I just sow there's a solution for the first problem (the console utf keymap) so
the correct line is:

  'mk-utf'                      : ['Macedonian', 'mk', 'pc104', ''],

But the second problem with including:
  Option      "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
in XF86Config still exists.

Added layout to CVS.

Brent -- we currently don't have a way to represent options which need to be
added in the keyboard model dict.  Interested in adding to
redhat-config-keyboard (and thus have it used by anaconda, etc)?

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-11-15 19:36:56 UTC
Hmm, I really want to keep this UI as simple as possible.  If the Macedonian
keyboards always need this option set, doesn't it make more sense to have the
Macedonian X keymap enable this by default instead of having to work around it
in the XF86Config file?

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-12-11 16:10:05 UTC
I think the keyboard tool is the wrong place to fix this.  If the Macedonian
keymap always needs 
"Option      "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
then it seems like the keymap should be fixed to always have this set by
default.  Please file a new bug against XFree86.

I'm going to close this report as "rawhide" since katzj has added the Macedonian
keymap to the keyboard model list.
