After xorg was upgraded to 7.4 I added AllowEmptyInput off and keep
using xorg.conf intead of moving to hal, my system is a current r189278.
Today I've decided to try to move my keyboard and mouse confs to hal
to start using the new configuration model. Mouse did fine, but i have
some problems with keyboard.
I use a Sun type 7 unix us keyboard, on my xorg.conf I had:
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbSymbols" "pc(pc105)+sun_vndr/usb(sun_usb)+pc(pc105)+us(intl)"
when I simply start my window manager without change hal, it recognize
the keyboard special keys, but it did a bit later, and windowmaker just find
these special keys after a wmaker restart. Ah, I use xdm on /etc/ttys
I've tried to add this keyboard.fdi on /usr/local/etc/hal/fdi/policy
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.keyboard">
<match key="info.product" contains="AT Translated Set
But I still have same problem, when windowmaker is loaded, it ignore the
Sun special keys, just if I do a restart it work fine.
I had this same problem in the past when I use startx, and someone from
xorg told me to start using *dm to fix the problem, I choose xdm and it
worked fine untill now.
Any kind of hellp will be appreciate
Thanks in advance
