Subject: [gentoo-user] fighting over keyboard layouts

1 Hi list,
3 I've just spent the last 4 days or so trying to get an old laptop up to date. It
4 hasn't been sync'd for at least 8 months so you can imagine the hell it's been.
6 Anyway, I've managed to get everything nicely updated but there's one problem that I
7 just can't fix or find relevant discussion about.
9 My /etc/conf.d/keymaps defines my keyboard layout as "uk" and this works fine in the
10 console. Unfortunately, in gnome the keyboard is resolutely stuck on US. I can add the
11 English UK layout in the keyboard preferences, and it looks fine when I first select
12 it. However they layout doesn't change and when I "Show" the English UK layout, it
13 shows a standard US layout.
15 No matter what I do (which admittedly isn't very much as I don't know X stuff that
16 well), I cannot get a decent keyboard layout in gnome.
18 Any tips would be appreciated before I rip all the keys off and get the super glue
19 out.
21 Thanks
