[SOLVED] Xorg and keyboard layout

Postby cubancigar11 » 2009-08-08 15:56

Hi!

I have just installed sid and I am having trouble with xorg.

The new tool (dpkg-reconfigure) creates empty xorg.conf. I know this is a bug, which causes keyboard layout to become "us", the default value.

What I want to know is, how to change it! It is driving me nuts!!

Where did you read that ??

X --help

X -configure => probe for devices and write an xorg.conf (xorg.conf.new written in /root)

You should also investigate dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

Here's my xorg.conf layout for a british layout.


# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Thanks a lot!

X -configure worked (I had to manually edit the file then, though).

I got this idea after googling a little bit. May be I added unrelated bug reports in my head :roll:
