So I've run the Xorg update. I've come across a number of problems (the biggest of which was needed to rebuilt xfce and losing all my settings).
The one I'm having real difficulty with at the moment is using a UK keyboard layout. Previously I had this line in my xorg.conf under the "Keyboard" InputDevice section:
Option "XkbLayout" "gb"
This doesn't work any more, so I followed the advice in this post:
to put the relevant entry in /usr/local/etc/hal/fdi/policy/x11-input.fdi
Still no joy. I get these lines in Xorg.0.log:
(II) Loading /usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/input//kbd_drv.so
(II) Module kbd: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
compiled for 1.5.3, module version = 1.3.2
Module class: X.Org XInput Driver
ABI class: X.Org XInput driver, version 2.1
(**) AT Keyboard: always reports core events
(**) Option "Protocol" "standard"
(**) AT Keyboard: Protocol: standard
(**) Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
(**) Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
(**) AT Keyboard: XkbRules: "xorg"
(**) Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
(**) AT Keyboard: XkbModel: "pc105"
(**) Option "XkbLayout" "us"
(**) AT Keyboard: XkbLayout: "us"
I'm getting around it at the moment by getting xfce to run this at startup:
But that's hardly an ideal solution. Can anyone suggest a better one?
