xkb not switching keymap on non-root users (xorg)

after installing new packages i found that i cannot change the keymap i'm using under x. i tried using this with root and it worked. i tried adding another user and starting x from there but no luck.
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Driver "kbd"
Option "CoreKeyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us,bg"
Option "XkbVariant" ",phonetic"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
It should work shouldn't it?
What else could there be?
Thanks in advance!
