Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 830428
systemd should obsolete/provide system-setup-keyboard.
Last modified: 2012-11-07 19:08:54 EST
Description of problem:
For unknown reason keyboard was set to English layout when logging in to Gnome 3 today after cold boot. My installation uses English language for menus and applications, but keyboard settings system wide and in local session is set to Norwegian. Changing keyboard settings in control panel and system-config-keyboard did not solve my problem. Same problem existed with Xfce4, with and without GDM3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
On an updated Fedora 17 instance with Norwegian keyboard, as of 9th June 2012, log into graphical desktop and X resets to English keyboard layout.
Steps to Reproduce:
In graphical desktop, keyboard is reset to English layout.
In graphical desktop, keyboard should use system keyboard layout (unless user specify other layout for session).
I noticed /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-system-setup-keyboard.conf pointed to /dev/null
Removing symbolic link, and running system-setup-keyboard, generated new 00-system-setup-keyboard.conf with settings for Norwegian keyboard. After this, keyboard worked. Result below.
# This file is autogenerated by system-setup-keyboard. Any
# modifications will be lost.
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "no"
# Option "XkbVariant" "(null)"
Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp,"

systemd does this. Lennart, what's the status on system-setup-keyboard and systemd? Can we retire system-setup-keyboard given that systemd just removes the file it creates anyway?
Yes, system-setup-keyboard should go away, and systemd will care about that.
I think, the only thing that's missing iat the moment, is to teach anaconda
to call into systemd-localed once, to create the config file initially.
We should drop the Requires: in the X server now, so that s-s-k can be removed,
and we will take care that systemd does all that properly.
Can you add a Provides/Obsoletes line to systemd once the remaining issues are fixed? We can update X once it's really gone.
Systemd obsoletes system-setup-keyboard since quite some while. Reassigning
the bug to get rid of the original package, or just close it from xorgs side,
if it's already done. Thanks!
Package was retired 31/07/2012, closing as fixed.
