$ vkeybd      
Error in startup script: no such variable
    (read trace on "env(LANG)")
    invoked from within
"string trim $env(LANG) ."
    (procedure "SearchDefaultLang" line 28)
    invoked from within
"SearchDefaultLang $defkeymap"
    invoked from within
"set optvar(keymap) [SearchDefaultLang $defkeymap]"

This only happens when $LANG isn't set. If one follows the localization guide, then this env-variable will be set through /etc/env.d/02locale.

This behavior wasn't the same with current stable... 
Maybe an elog-message if that variable isn't set could be of use!?

the same check is there for HOME btw
Comment 3 Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-06-27 17:53:39 UTC
I've added a postinst message, but it's not the full solution here, so leaving this open.

Mailing upstream now.
