Some issues with xfce/zenwalk 8.0


I have made a fresh install of the recente release of Zenwalk 8.0. So far, so good, i'm having two problems, that i don't know if it's related to Zenwalk or Xfce
  1. I have tried to configure two keyboard layouts under Menu -> Settings -> Keyboard -> Layout. Once activated, numbers, letters, punctuations just change their positions like, pressing "f" and getting "o". I need to restart Zenwalk, go back to the settings and check the box "Use system defaults"
  2. Xfrun4 ( Alt+F2 ) does not auto complete. I need to expand it to be able to auto complete. I really dont know if this is intended, if so, how to lanuch xfrun4 alread expanded ?
Thank you very much.

Make sure that your keyboard is set to generic 105-key (intl) PC and US English.
You can also read the man page for the keyboard. That might help.
man xkeyboard-config
You can also try setxkbmap - set the keyboard using the X Keyboard Extension
man setxkbmap
I've never tried using those commands before so read the man pages carefully.

<OR> try another keyboard if you have another on hand.

The "official" Zenwalk keyboard layout setting tool is keyboardconfig

From the XFCE panel : launch "System keyboard layout"
From CLI : "keyboardconfig".
