Re: occured problems on fresh 2v18 install

Christian, I ran into some of these problems.

I found a solution to the Xt errors with xf86cfg. I just copied
libXt.so.6.0 from Xbin.tgz that I downloaded from xfree86.org over
debian's library. (See previous posts about that problem) That problem
still exists.

Have ya tried xf86config to configure the keyboard? I also find that
xkeycaps works quite well. (I switch keyboard layouts by using the gnome
keyboard applet).

Yeah, I found that in xfonts-base or xserver-common (I forget which one).
