# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

When referring to another thread, you are best off to link to that thread:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=82031

In this case it's not a cross post as you are providing information that has already been established.

HOWEVER...

Since you have already posted 1 thread regarding this issue, this is a case of double posting, and if you read the rules, this does violate them. Please keep discussion for the same problem all in 1 thread, this helps you to avoid miscommunication and helps us to avoid looking all over the board for info on your post.

I am now closing this thread, if anyone wants to respond, please do so here:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=82031

Thank You!

Cool
