So, against my better judgment I let my (K)Ubuntu upgrade itself to Jaunty. I use kxkb to configure my keyboard; but now the keyboard switching key changes the little icon in the system tray, but not the layout itself. Moreover, when I try to set the keyboard manually, I get
fedya@chameleon:/etc/X11$ setxkbmap -model pc104 -layout ca,us,ru -variant eng,intl,basic
Error loading new keyboard description
(with or without sudoing)
One thing that has changed is xorg.conf, this being the possibly relevant portion:
# commented out by update-manager, HAL is now used
# Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
# Driver "kbd"
# Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
# Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
# Option "XkbLayout" "us"
# Option "XkbVariant" "alt-intl"
# Option "XkbOptions" "lv3:ralt_switch"
But I have no idea what I need to do...
