xkbprint error: no input file specified


Hi,

when I try to print the current keyboard layout with "xkbprint -o layout.ps" it gives me the error mentioned in the subject. I also remember printing it a couple of weeks ago (and I'm sure I didn't specify any additional options), but now it just doesn't work.
Everything I read on the Net assume this command prints the current layout, and so far I haven't discovered even the slightest mention of this error. It's a trifle, but it drives me mad.

What could I be doing wrong?

Well, first of all, according to the man page, you need to specify a display or a compiled keyboard definition file to print. Try it with "xkbprint -o layout.ps :0".

Beyond that, a little bit of searching on Google turned up a comment or two suggesting that there was a recent bug that caused the same error, but I haven't confirmed it.

Strangely enough, it's not working on one of my two systems, but it is working on the other. I made sure they're both running the most recent version of xkbprint (in Debian it's provided by the x11-xkb-utils package), so I guess the source of the problem probably lies somewhere deeper in the x-server. I'm not going to try updating everything right now to check, however.
