Description Zlatko Trajceski 2002-10-29 01:15:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021018 Description of problem: Please add the Macedonian keyboard to the /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/keyboard_models.py with the following options: 'mk' : ['Macedonian', 'mk', 'pc104', ''], But there's a problem with this setting so please I need a help here. This setting defines also a console keyboard and in this case it's a mk keyboard which is iso-8859-5, but that's wrong keyboard since in RH 8.0 utf8 is the default encoding the right keyboard is mk-utf. So the mk (iso5) keyborad is wrong setting and mk-utf is correct one, but this tool insist the X and console keyboard to have the same name. Any solution to this? Problem 2 is that XKB Macedonian keyboard needs: Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle" Any idea how can I specify for that to be included in XF86Config when I select the Macedonian keyboard in redhat-config-keyboard? Thanks a lot in advance. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Just log in :_) 2. 3. Additional info:

I just sow there's a solution for the first problem (the console utf keymap) so the correct line is: 'mk-utf' : ['Macedonian', 'mk', 'pc104', ''], But the second problem with including: Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle" in XF86Config still exists.

Added layout to CVS. Brent -- we currently don't have a way to represent options which need to be added in the keyboard model dict. Interested in adding to redhat-config-keyboard (and thus have it used by anaconda, etc)?
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-11-15 19:36:56 UTC
Hmm, I really want to keep this UI as simple as possible. If the Macedonian keyboards always need this option set, doesn't it make more sense to have the Macedonian X keymap enable this by default instead of having to work around it in the XF86Config file?
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-12-11 16:10:05 UTC
I think the keyboard tool is the wrong place to fix this. If the Macedonian keymap always needs "Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle" then it seems like the keymap should be fixed to always have this set by default. Please file a new bug against XFree86. I'm going to close this report as "rawhide" since katzj has added the Macedonian keymap to the keyboard model list.
