Just a note, because I use the dvorak keyboard layout and on sw 13.0 'xorgsetup' doesn't do anything.
As noted in changes and hints:
If you need to use a non-US keyboard layout, then copy the file located at
/usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-keymap.fdi to /etc/hal/fdi/policy
and edit it to suit your needs. Have a look at the contents of that file
for an example and more information.
Add keyboard layout in Slack 13.37....In this example i use my lang -> Greek:
Hal daemon is history....At least ,about hotplugging . So, now if you want to modify - add a layout in your keyboard you should do the following:
The version of Xorg in Slackware 13.37 will not (in most cases) require an
/etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Input hotplugging is no longer done using hal;
instead, it now uses udev for input device detection and keyboard mapping.
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ is the "packaged" configuration directory; all
files ending with ".conf" in this directory are used by the X server
unless there is an identically-named file in the local sysadmin directory.
The local sysadmin config directory is /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ - all files
ending with ".conf" in this directory are parsed.
