Both approaches do not work as mate keyboard takes over and changes the layout
regardless of what you set in xorg.conf, but Mate keyboard "forgets" to set
the layout to what the user has configured. I need some time to debug it
though work allowing.
Not that I am aware of: HAL is a depedancy of Xorg, not MATE. According to the
docs, and what I have checked, the "current" version of Xorg in pkg is not built
with hal support, so it's not needed.
