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:
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
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,
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys. Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
