How do we select a different keyboard in xfce? I've installed xfce-xkb-plugin but it only displays one choice in the pop-up: US.
I like to use dvorak. How do we get the plugin to offer more than one choice?
example from my xorg.conf
Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Keyboard0" Driver "kbd" Option "CoreKeyboard" Option "XkbRules" "xorg" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" Option "XkbLayout" "de,no,se" Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle" EndSection
OK. I have two xorg.conf files. I'm not sure which is being used so I'll change both.
Making changes in both doesn't affect the plugin at all, even though the system behaviour has changed. It now uses dvorak as default. That is what I want, but I would like a switcher so that others can use the QWERTY keymapping.
thanks for your help.
I don't now is this will help you but it's a fun knowledge:
Look for your keyboards in /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/xorg.lst (this is a Debian path) and see that they are called.
Then remove that unsofisticated "pc105" from you XkbModel line and insert the correct call instead.
In my case I got a Logitech Cordless Desktop Pro called logicdp and my line looks like this:
Option "XkbModel" "logicdp"
I've got freeBSD running. The equivalent path is /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/rules. Looking through the list I can't see my keyboard listed, an IBM KB-7953, so I'll have to stick with the generic description.
