Keyboard locale

Hi all

Am having a small problem with keyboard locales - when I did an apt-get update && apt-get upgrade, my keyboard locale went back to the US keyboard layout, while I can change it back to the UK keyboard layout temporarily in the terminal windows, but it doesn't change for X server, and after a reboot, the keyboard layout changes back.

And the strange thing is that in the XF86 config file, the keyboard is set to UK:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "keyboard"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xfree86"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "pc104"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "gb"
        Option          "XkbVariant"    "gb"

And in the /var/log/XFree86.0.log file:

(**) Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
(**) XKB: model: "pc104"
(**) Option "XkbLayout" "gb"
(**) XKB: layout: "gb"
(**) Option "XkbVariant" "gb"
(**) XKB: variant: "gb"

so it seems to be loading okay...

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks very much for your help in advance

Cheers - Piers
