(Solved) Xorg.conf Keyboard layouts


Hi I just reconfigured xorg to get nvidia working and now the keyboard layout isnīt working properly that is the single quote button wont work.

I have 2 keyboard layouts from other Xorgś which have worked perfectly for this keyboard but I cannot get them to work on etch under gnome as X crashes on boot up with them. These are they
Quote:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
Option "XkbVariant" "intl"
EndSection
and
Quote:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard1"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us(alt-intl)"
Option "XkbOptions" "compose:rwin"
EndSection
It seems that it has to do with the identifer section of the conf, but if I set it back to Ļ Identifier "Generic Keyboard" then the function(single quote) does not work, oh and the home key next to number 1 does not work. Any Ideas ?

It would seem us_intl even though it has worked under previous installs is the fault here.
