XFCE & setxkbmap


The keyboard seems stuck on en_US in xfce 4 - you can't set the LANG variable to en_GB in Settings > Window Manager. If I open Konquerer, then change the kb from settings://Regional and Accessibility, it works, but only as long as Konquerer is open. I tried copying the command it showed
Code:
setxkbmap -model pc104 -layout gb -variant basic
into a terminal, but no luck.

You can specify keyboard options at /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
Also if you want to set globally the LANG variable edit it in /etc/profile.d/lang.sh

Editing /etc/profile.d/lang.sh looks like it might be the answer. Thanks!
The kb was already set in xorg.conf and working at the command line, which is why I was so confused. Now all I have to do is restart the daemon that executes lang.sh (I'm assuming that the "d" stands for "daemon"). Er... how do you do that?

Well, it happens that profile.d is not a daemon
The scripts inside profile.d are executed by /etc/profile which is read everytime you login into some virtual terminal (or a some X term with login activated).
I would suggest you to quit X, logout, relogin, and start X again.
