Description Toni Willberg 2003-06-23 12:32:13 EDT

Obviously redhat-config-keyboard should update /etc/X11/XF86Config also, but for
some reason it does not seem to do so.

Every time I restart my X, I've got US keyboard instead of FI.

Something writes the following to my XF86Config:
 Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "keyboard"
It should say something about Option ''"XkbLayout" "fi"'' too.
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2003-07-01 10:56:20 EDT
It does update the file, but only if the XkbLayout line already exists, it
seems.  I'm unclear how your XF86Config file doesn't have an XkbLayout line
already in it.  I will try to add some code to handle this situation.
Comment 2 Toni Willberg 2003-07-01 11:08:50 EDT
I have a feeling that I've generated my XF86Config file with some configuration
utility (can't remember what, perhaps RedHat's own? :)

Anyway, keyboard config applet should add the line if it's missing, I think.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-07-01 12:10:11 EDT
Should be fixed in redhat-config-keyboard-1.1.2-1 and should appear in Rawhide soon.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2003-07-01 12:10:45 EDT
Also, I meant to add that the program should now create an XkbLayout line if one
doesn't already exist.
