Description Brice Goglin 2007-02-18 03:56:06 UTC
This bug has been reported to the Debian BTS 4 years ago by Sean Neakums regarding XFree86 4.2.1 and is still valid for Xorg 7.2. Whether I start Xnest with no options, with -kb or with +kb, I cannot seem to get the XKEYBOARD extension. It's not listed in xdpyinfo output. According to the submitter, it used to work with XFree86 4.1.0. This keymap problem makes Xnest pretty hard to use for keyboards all over the world other than US. It seems to work fine with Xephyr +kb. I understand that Xephyr should be preferred to Xnest, so this bug might never be closed. But at least it will be known. Thanks.

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys. Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
