#108 closed System Defect (fixed)

Incorrect keyboard layout in xorg configurator

Reported by: pheet Owned by:
Priority: critical Milestone: 7.0
Component: XOrg Configurator Version: 1.4.1
Keywords: keyboard Cc:


The configurator always sets the keyboard layout to US.

As this can prevent users from being able to login via KDM, it's fairly serious.

Part of the problem is the keyboard layout is not properly set during install - see bug #77 and bug #78.

However, when the correct keyboard is set by manually editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf ,subsequent running of the configurator will again incorrectly set the keyboard back to US.

Suggested fix:

The installer must:

a) change to the key board layout the user has selected for the install
b) Store the chosen layout correctly when writing the inital xorg.conf file

The xorg configurator should read the existing keyboard layout from xorg.conf, and use that value when writing the new xorg.conf file.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Tested this in 1.5.1 pre-release, fresh ISO. It appears fixed there, if I choose "de" for my keyboard layout, it changes it properly, then this also appears in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf on the booted system. Should be fixed now.
