Hello, I have no ide what to do to fix this annoying feature, by default when I start the X the only effect what I get is to changing the video mode (resolution) when I press any key. Renaming the /etc/X11/xkb directory causes that the X server starts up correctly but of course I have no XKB: toma@inky:~$ xprop -root | grep XKB _XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "base", "pc101", "us", "", "" because it is only a falled back config: (II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Configured Mouse" (type: MOUSE) (II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Generic Keyboard" (type: KEYBOARD) (EE) Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back to pre-XKB keymap (II) Configured Mouse: ps2EnableDataReporting: succeeded my related config: Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Generic Keyboard" Driver "keyboard" Option "CoreKeyboard" Option "XkbRules" "xorg" Option "XkbModel" "pc104" Option "XkbLayout" "us" EndSection which is pretty "default". The most interesting part of it: the same happens when I try to use xfree86. And I tried to purge everything in /etc/X11 and /usr/lib/X11, after reinstalling everything I got the same. And, I tried to used Ps2 keyboard instead of my USB MS one, same effect. And it's a bit surprising, I remember, there was a time, with my old config, when it worked. But something changed, honestly, I don't know what, I hope you can give me some hints. I tried strace xorg at the startup, but I haven't seen any further reading of xkb config. Can you tell me something positive? :) I can't use any non-US keyboard layout... I'm using x86 debian unstable. You're my last hope, toma
