how about keyboard layout ?
f-s-keyboard (now system-setup-keyboard) used to send
conf through hal to X
the package is already updated to create
/etc/xorg.conf.d/00-system-setup-keyboard.conf (instead of merging into
please consider the following points:
we need to specify two layouts with functional switching
(in previous releases we in ojuba.org
were forced to hack and patch
many packages like gdm to get switching, for example gdm does this:
"system-wide conf should be ignored to let the user have a fancy menu
having all layout", then it fail to activate switching)
I'm not sure I understand exactly what you need here, but AIUI you just need this:
Identifier "custom layout"
Option "XkbLayout" "foo,bar"
save this as /etc/xorg.conf.d/99-custom-layout.conf and that should then
overwrite the config by system-setup-keyboard.
we need to specify xim as default input method because it's the
input method that supports two-letters per key (needed for the two
letters لا in Arabic layout located on key "b")
BTW: how hard does it take to make the default input method support this ?
I cannot answer this, I've only had high-level interaction with input
methods so far.
