Subject description: Solved with new version of libX11
 

Hi there,

sorry for the repost (if it is the case),

I am running Upup Raring (Amazing is really a lesser word for it Wink ), and I am having some trouble with the keyboard. The keyboard layout keeps booting into the US layout despite that in the options menu it says to the layout ES is activated (I want ES layout).

When I change it in the menu sometimes it does not change, other it change after a while but always it turns back to US layout after a while or on reboot.

I am using a live session now, and I use it under several computers, and the problem persists.

Any clues how to solve this?

Go /etc/X11/xorg.conf , edit this line
Option "XkbLayout" "us" #xkeymap0
make it like this:
Option "XkbLayout" "es" #xkeymap0
save and restartx.

Ola' Joao, tudo bem?

The US keyboard layout problem is a known bug which we investigated a few weeks ago. We discovered that it is caused by the version of libX11

Try installing the libX11 from here:-

I think you will find that this fixes the problem.

Hi there,

by far the LibX11 is working perfectly. "es" layout loaded on booting from .2sf and until now it didn't turn back to the "us" layout has happened before. Very Happy

I would like to add a comment on the "es" layout, which I don't know up to which extent it depends on you Puppy developers to correct/improve it:

Contrarily to Ubuntu, the "es" layout (I tried every, and I am using now the #2 variant, Sun Dead Keys) does not allow me to put ~ over a letter, like ã. While in Ubuntu this is possible. As soon as I press ~ it appears. Rolling Eyes

any comments?

Best whishes Razz
