UK keyboard layout problem
Tue May 4 10:54:00 GMT 2004
since updating the XFree version to the latest version (via cygwin setup), I
always have the US keyboard layout. Note that I had the appropriate UK
layout before without having to do anything at all (I did skip a few updates
so unfortunately can't tell you from when this happened).
So, I tried to read the FAQ and did the following:
I modified startxwin.bat to do:
XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -emulate3buttons -xkblayout uk
but that didn't help.
Then I tried the testing procedure given on the web page:
setxkbmap de -model pc105
but I get the following:
Couldn't interpret _XKB_RULES_NAMES property
Use defaults: rules - 'xorg' model - 'pc101' layout - 'us'
Couldn't find rules file (xorg)
Potentially related is that I don't seem to have
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb, but only
What can I do?
(running NT 4.0 sp6a and the latest cygwin according to what setup says)
