Comment 13 for bug 985065

Forwarding this bug from Ubuntu reporter Michael Terry:
http://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xkeyboard-config/+bug/985065

[Problem]
In Ubuntu, using the GUI capplet to add a new default layout does not actually change the key mappings. A libxklavier error from X is seen.

[Original Description]
This is a break-out bug from bug 960096.

When you have fr/oss "French (alternative)" layout as your first layout, you end up with "us" instead.

If you enable libxklavier debugging output, you'll see the following in your logs:

"Unexpected by libxklavier X ERROR: 0x8351fb8, 163f0005, 2 [], X11 request: 145, minor code: 9"

                xkl_debug(200,
                          "Unexpected by libxklavier X ERROR: %p, "
                          WINID_FORMAT ", %d [%s], "
                          "X11 request: %d, minor code: %d\n", dpy,
                          (unsigned long) evt->resourceid,
                          (int) evt->error_code, buf,
                          (int) evt->request_code, (int) evt->minor_code);

That 2 in there is the X error code, which means _XkbErrMissingTypes for xkbfile extension. I assume 145 is the major op code that got assigned for the XKBFile extension. If so, 9 is the X_kbSetMap request. Which all fits with an error trying to set the new layout map.
