keyboard layout messed up between X and Gnome

Bug #164830 reported by adam0509 on 2007-11-24
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xorg (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


I use a Dell Inspiron 6400 (ubuntu offer in france).

Each time I try to change some Xorg stuff's, gnome messed up with my keyboard layout

Some times I get qwerty keyboard
Some times I can use ALT-GR to select third level
Some times I can't use some things like the e with accent : (When 1 press 123456789 it gets only these &"'(-_) )

And somet times, I really think Windows is better for keyboard layout >_<

I got a message some times when I want to change hings in GNOME kyboard layout. It says that he has little problems with X (doh !) , and invie me to paste these commands :

benoit@dell:~$ xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xorg", "pc105", "fr-oss", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xorg", "pc105", "fr-oss", "", ""
benoit@dell:~$ gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd
 layouts = [fr-oss,fr]
 model =
 options = []
 overrideSettings = true
