Description Lawrence Lim 2005-05-19 00:29:44 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #130853 +++

Description of problem:
If a user for any Indic language wishes to switch the keyboard layout
to that of his language, it cannot be done thru system-config-keyboard. 
It is not possible to select multiple keyboard layouts using this applet. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run system-config-keyboard as root

Actual results:
- Cannot switch to any indic keyboard layout (no options available)
- Cannot select multiple layouts

Expected results:
- should be able to select indic keyboard layouts
- should be able to select multiple layouts

Additional info:
Currently, there are no indic keyboard layouts available to select in
Multiple layout selection is essential for indic languages, since all
indic users switch between indic and english very often. 
All of these capabilities are available in the keyboard applet of
gnome preferences.

Comment 1 Lawrence Lim 2005-05-19 00:34:49 UTC
In EL4, 4 out of 5 supported Indic has been fixed. Only Punjabi (Inscript) still
has a slight problem (option shift_toggle not set).

Fix has this bug has been incorporated in rhpl-0.164-1 for FC4.
