Bug Description

I'm using the NEO2 keyboard layout, this layout contains 6 Layers. Not all of them are displayed in the Layout Chart accessible from the unity keyboard menu. Additionally, the Level four modificators aren't highlighted properly.

NEO contains these layers:
Lower case Latin: included in the layout map :-)
Upper case Latin (Shift): included in the layout map :-)
Normal special characters (Chaps Lock): included in the layout map :-)
Navigation and Numpad: (Level 4 key, not properly highlighted): NOT included :-(
Lower case Greek: included in the layout map :-)
Upper case Greek, Math symbols(⊂∫∀∃∈Σℕℝ): NOT included :-(

To me it looks like a “we don't have that much space in there“ problem, but it would be nice if it could be resolved anyway.

I think the layout preview is handled by libgnomekbd. Moving there.

I did execute “apport-collect 1051169”. Does this really help you? I don't thing there is any missing information you could get from apport.

The attached screen shot shows quite well what is missing. On the left you see the actual layout preview, and on the right you see the correct layout with circles around the items missing on the left.

See for a complete layout overview. Hover over “Ebene 1” to “Ebene 6” to see the different layers and which key(s) activate them.
