QXKB on Porteus-2.0 RC1

Post#1 by Hamza » 31 Dec 2012, 13:54

Hi,

I am having an issue with QXKB on Porteus 2.0 RC1 i486. When I change keyboard layout to any other languages than English (US). The flag placed in bottom right in the task bar doesn't being refreshed with the correct flag. It doesn't change.

HOW TO REPRODUCE
  1. Boot into Always Fresh Mode
  2. Open a terminal window
  3. Type this command according to your keyboard layout:

    Code: Select all

    setxkbmap fr
  4. Check if the flag changes on the bottom-right part of your screen (in taskbar).
My layout identifier is fr but it can anything else than us. The bug is always here.

Can you please confirm that changing the keyboard by actually using the QXKB tool (right click on flag and select language) works ok? The flag is changed along with the keyboard?
