Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 981494
localectl fails to apply xkb keymap immediately after selecting it
Last modified: 2015-06-29 08:02:52 EDT
Somewhat like https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=981491 , only for the X11 keymap, and not apparently SELinux-related, as it happens with Enforcing or Permissive.
Doing 'localectl set-x11-keymap fr' changes /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf appropriately, and makes plain 'localectl' claim that the X11 layout is now fr, but it does not in fact change the current operational xkb layout. I don't see any errors in the logs (if SELinux is in permissive), but the keyboard still acts like the layout is US, and 'setxkbmap -print' reports that it is US. If I reboot the system (so 00-keyboard.conf gets a chance to 'kick in'), the keyboard now behaves as if it's FR, and setxbmap -print reports that it is.
Affects both Rawhide and F19.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
