Description sherif nagy 2006-01-05 00:39:33 UTC
i'm seting up Multihead station based on mandriva 2006 1 keyboard ps/2 and 3
keyboards useb, i'm using Driver "keyboard" for the ps2 keyboard and "evdev" for
the usb keyboards.Xorg the one tha came along with mandriva 2006. i have
problems it's like the scancodes are messed up in the usb keyboards and i can't
change layouts. sure KDE keys doing somehting strnage some keys don't work.

here is the command: 
$ setxkbmap -model pc105 layout ar

error is:
Couldn't interpret _XKB_RULES_NAMES property
Use defaults: rules - 'xorg' model - 'pc101' layout - 'us'
*** glibc detected *** double free or corruption (out): 0xb7f603a0 ***
