Subject: [gentoo-user] KDE4 doesn't heed hal keyboard settings
Date: Thu, 25 Mar 2010 12:49:23
1 Hello
3 I'm not sure how to specify the topic in more detail. Over the last to hours I
4 tried to get KDE4 to behave like it did before I rebuilt my system. My goal is
5 to have a German layout with dead keys. In the process I've even gotten the
6 system to react to the menu key again. But apart from that, for some reason,
7 KDE4 won't behave like I want it to.
9 I say KDE4 because KDE3 apparently works. I know because login with KDM4
10 doesn't work at the moment, so I'm using KDM3. There I can input accented
11 letters of all sorts (in the username input field). But not in KDM4 and not in
12 my KDE4 environment.
14 I also tried it with and without KDE's own keyboard layout settings, where I
15 set up a de layout of default variant (thus with dead keys). But to no avail.
17 Here's the content of my hal config file:
19 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
20 <deviceinfo version="0.2">
21 <device>
22 <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.keyboard">
23 <merge key="input.x11_options.XkbRules" type="string">evdev</merge>
24 <merge key="input.x11_options.XkbModel" type="string">evdev</merge>
26 <merge key="input.x11_options.XkbLayout" type="string">de</merge>
27 <merge key="input.xkb.options"
28 type="strlist">menu:Multi_key,terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp</merge>
29 </match>
30 </device>
31 </deviceinfo>
33 It worked before[TM], and I have no idea where else to look. Any ideas please?
