Subject: install: keympap problem in Gnome 2.6
Package: install
Severity: important

*** Please type your report below this line ***
Installation of Sarge on a PC with the new installer. Always this
problem with keymap refusing to be loaded: azerty is changed to qwerty.
So again dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86; but the problem persists. So
dpkg-reconfigure console-data + dpkg-reconfigure console-common . To
finish, azerty keymap is correctly loaded in Windowmaker as in KDE. But
the qwerty keymap persists in the console of Gnome 2.6

This is probably because GNOME uses its own keyboard setting initiated
from XKB setting (the one presents in your /etc/X11/XF86Config*) and for
later runs it _overrides_ the XKB setting.  Could you try to configure
your azerty keyboard via 'gnome-keyboard-properties' (you can also
access it through Applications-Desktop Prefences->Keyboard)?  If you
don't want such a behaviour from GNOME, you may also invoke the
following command:

   gconftool-2 --type bool --set \
	/desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb/overrideSettings false

P.S. We should reassing this bug to somewhere else related with GNOME
(or perhaps we may prefer it to close), if my explanations are correct
for the problem.

Thanks. Indeed the problem has been solved thanks via gnome-keyboard-properties.
Hope that helps.
