Description Csaba Szigetvári 2005-10-03 13:28:29 UTC
This appears to be a duplicate of BUG 606, though that bug report is related to
a previous version of xorg.

Under Gnome within the Keyboard Preferences application under the tab Layouts I
have tried to add the japanese layout to my "Generic 105-key (Intl) PC" keyboard
model additionally to the default language setting, but not making japanese the
default. Immediately after this an error message pops up. This message is
repeated each time the Keyboard preferences application is launched, and also
when the XServer is started. The error message is shown below.
Happened on a Linux i686 running Fedora Core 4, updated xorg modules via up2date
 at the last week of september 2005.
------------------------------
Error activating XKB configuration.
It can happen under various circumstances:
- a bug in libxklavier library
- a bug in X server (xkbcomp, xmodmap utilities)
- X server with incompatible libxkbfile implementation

X server version data:
The X.Org Foundation
60802000

If you report this situation as a bug, please include:
- The result of <b>xprop -root | grep XKB</b>
- The result of <b>gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd</b>
------------------------------
results regular:
xprop -root | grep XKB

_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xorg", "pc105", "hu", "", "grp:alts_toggle"xprop 

gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd
 layouts = [hu]
 model = pc105

results with japanese layout as second choice>

All xorg modules belong to version 6.8.2

Ok, i'm using Fedora Core 4 and i was trying to install two keyboard layouts 1 
Macedonian and another Polish.

This was done by simply trying to add both Polish and Macedonian keyboard 
layouts. From the Desktop -> Preferences -> Keyboard
From the Menu located in X windows (GNOME)

Actual results:
Error above

Expected results:
Accepted Keyboard layout with out errors

'pl2' is not a valid layout: please take this bug up with your distribution vendor.
