setxkbmap crashes Xorg
Has anybody found a work-around bug #462243
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=462243). It was
merged with an upstream bug in Xorg
(https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14162). It happens in my
Debian sid system, with a M$ Natural Ergonomic (4000 v1.0) keyboard,
whenever setxkbmap is called. I do this through kde's keyboard layout
in control center, and X simply crashes. It also happens with a mere
call to setxkbmap on the command line without args.
I have this relevant entry in xorg.conf:
,-----[ xorg.conf (lines: 50 - 57) ]
| Section "InputDevice"
| # generated from default
| Identifier "Keyboard0"
| Driver "kbd"
| Option "XkbModel" "microsoftpro"
This has completely crippled the ability to change keyboard layout
between languages, so any ideas are welcome. Thanks.
