I found a simple workaround: create a new lateral panel and
destroy the buggy one.

Comment 2 Toni Willberg 2003-06-23 17:44:50 UTC
Still missing from upstream also...

Currently there is no official way to change keymap in RedHat Linux in usermode.
Is there going to be one soon?

Someone at RedHat dare to comment on this?

ps. you could change 8.0 -> 9

Comment 3 Jonathan Blandford 2003-06-30 19:28:22 UTC
This has been filed upstream and is actively being worked on.  It looks like it
won't make the cut for GNOME 2.4, but should be in for GNOME 2.6.  I'll backport
it if it is finished in a timely fashion.
