Hi all, first I apologise if this is a known issue, I have been
searching but can't seem to find an answer. I am looking to switch to
FreeBSD full time and this is the only thing holding me back I want to
run XFCE and I know the 4.8 release has some issues with mounting
devices which used to use HAL but doesn't now, from what I understand
of the issue it's not a deal breaker for me, what I am struggling with
is that I cannot set the keyboard in XFCE to dvorak, as the layout tab
is missing and the keyboard icon in the settings window has no icon. I
imagined this was at first just requiring the correct language pack
but having installed the GB language pack the missing tab does not
appear. Additionally I recompiled xfce4-settings with all options
enabled to no avail.

Does anyone know what may be causing this issue?

Many thanks,
