XKB Configuration Manager bug

June 19, 2024 — BarryK

Forum members FeodorF and BologneChe reported errors with this keyboard configuration tool:

It works for me, except for the "Layout Variants" button, the bug that BologneChe reported.

I found that a symlink is missing. Do this in a terminal to fix it:

# ln -s base.lst /stc/X11/xkb/rules/xorg.lst

...that "l" is the letter, not numeric one.

I checked, that symlink does exist in EasyOS Kirkstone.

Note, "XKB Configuration Manager" is script /usr/bin/xkbconfigmanager, and is in the menu, via "Setup -> Date and Time Setup". Or, can find it via the "setup" desktop icon, in the "Hardware" tab.

I don't know about the error FeodorF has reported. Perhaps it is a problem with non-English locale?

The fix will of course be in the next release of Easy.
