Bug#185996: xlibs: "Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back to pre-XKB keymap"
Something changed in the conversion to the official "xlibs" deb such that one
always gets the error message:
Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back to pre-XKB keymap
in the XFree86 startup/log. Even a minimalist keyboard section in the config
file, such as
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
# Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
# Option "XkbLayout" "us"
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps,altwin:super_win"
gives the same results. Uncommenting any of the options does not change
As a point of reference, the above configuration, with the options uncommented,
worked just fine in Branden's previous versions of the deb. For example, I had
it working with version 4.2.1-6pre7v2, from the X Strike Force experimental
