Cannot add Keyboard layouts with Slack 12 rc1


Hello everybody,

I have successfully updated my system to 12 rc1. The only problem I 've come through is that I cannot add any keyboard layout from the KDE Control Center. The available layouts list seems to be empty.
Any ideas?

Have you installed the kde-i18n language packages?

Keyboard layouts should work without any i18n packages (it's an X11 feature, after all).

For changing your keyboard layout inside xserver, I would use 'xorgsetup'. If you don't want to, just take a look inside '/etc/X11/xorg.conf', and look for a section like this:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "kbd"
	Option       "XkbModel"  "pc101"
	Option       "XkbLayout"  "us(dvorak)"
EndSection
Notice the "XkbLayout" and after that "us(dvorak)", that's just my keyboard layout, replace it with yours.

Ah, my mistake, I forgot the i18n packages only offer translations for KDE, not the layouts. I stand corrected.

I finally managed to solve it by installing everything from the /x folder. I will now try to figure out which packages are necessary by uninstalling one package at a time.
Thanx for the help
