Bug Description

xorg 1:7.5+6ubuntu3, Ubuntu Maverick

When changing keyboard layout from "Apple Laptop" to "MacBook/MacBook Pro", this error appeared: "Error activating XKB configuration ... X server version data: The X.org Foundation 10900000..."

The error alert asks for "The result of xprop-root | grep XKB". The result is "xprop-root: command not found". (apt-get has never heard of xprop-root, either.)

The error alert also asks for "The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd".

 layouts = [us mac,us,af]
