Description Zdenek Behan 2005-11-19 16:12:08 UTC
The pc/cz keymap for xkb is broken. Probably with the modular X in and updated
version of xkb, some new path checking came in, and broke it in
Applies for all x11-misc/xkbdata versions i tried, though it appeared very recently.
Every include "cz(basic)" should be include "pc/cz(basic)", otherwise setxkbmap
throws generic error while trying to set the keymap with specified variant. This
is the keymap with which i noticed the problem, might happen in other keymaps
too, but i'm not entirely sure about the file structure.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1) rain@BH2 /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/pc $ setxkbmap -model pc101 -layout cz
-variant qwerty
Error loading new keyboard description

diff cz.old cz
<     include "cz(basic)"
>     include "pc/cz(basic)"
<     include "cz(basic)"
>     include "pc/cz(basic)"
<     include "cz(qwerty)"
>     include "pc/cz(qwerty)"
