Summary: X.Org: Switching between cz(qwerty) and us(basic)
keyboards does not work correctly
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Beta 1
Platform: All
OS/Version: SuSE Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: X.Org
AssignedTo: sndirsch@xxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: pmladek@xxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: sndirsch@xxxxxxxxxx


I was not able to write the character '|' on openSUSE-10.2-beta1. I did clean
installation and selected "Czech(qwerty)" keyboard.

It produced the following code in xorg.conf:
--- cut ---
Section "InputDevice"
Driver "kbd"
Identifier "Keyboard[0]"
Option "Protocol" "Standard"
Option "XkbLayout" "cz,us"
Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:shift_toggle"
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbVariant" "qwerty,basic"
EndSection
--- cut ---

It means that I should be able to switch between cz(qwerty) and us(basic) by
pressing both shifts. It worked only partly:

I was able to print "+ěščřžýáíé" in the cz(qwerty) mode and
"1234567890" in the us(basic) mode.

I wasn't able to print '|'. I got ''' in both modes.

I was able to reproduce it also with a test user in both KDE and GNOME, so it
seems to be X-server-related.

It works for me now after I switched the order, so us(basic) is my primary
keyboard now.
