XKB Won't work with Beryl/Xgl

Ok so for the past few days I've been messing around with Arch, Beryl, Xgl and KDE (there have been numerous problems and there's still some annoying oddities but i'll save them for another day).

The problem i am facing is that when using Beryl in KDE, XKB options from the xorg.conf don't seem to work, in that it's using a US layout now instead of the UK one i want (and set).

Here is the part of the xorg.conf i think is relevant

ection "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "Keyboard0"
    Driver         "keyboard"
    Option         "CoreKeyboard"
    Option         "XkbRules" "xorg"
    Option         "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option         "XkbLayout" "uk"
    Option         "XkbVariant" ""
So my actual question is, how do i either:

* Get XKB working with Beryl/XGL


* What other way can i set the keyboard layout for X? (setting KEYMAP= in the rc.conf will only work outside of X it seems)

You may need to stablish a symlink for the xgl to read it

ln -sf /usr/share/X11/xkb /etc/X11/xkb
