[There is no answer from freebsd-questions, so I repost here]
After upgrading to Xorg 7.2 "by the book" (/usr/ports/UPDATING), I
could not switch my keyboard layouts as I did with the previous
version. Even more, I could not switch to text-mode console using
After I've regenerated a new xorg.conf using "Xorg -configure", I was
able to switch to text-mode console, but after adding the two lines
for keyboard layout switch (from my old xorg.conf):
Option "XkbLayout" "us,ro"
Option "XKbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
Ctrl-Alt-F1 stopped working and the keyboard layout switching did not
work. Google gave me some hints from the Gentoo documentation site
regarding the imposibility to switch to text-mode console, but the
solutions provided there did not work for me.
Are there any substantial changes in the way that keyboard layout
switching works in X.org 7.2 vs. 6.9?
