fbxkb the keyboard applet for Xorg on TC 2.0
« on: June 08, 2009, 02:53:03 AM »
Hi,

I have done frugal install of TC 2.0 today and added Xorg, gtk2 with all dependencies and added fbxkb.

The applet is working well on TC 2.0 but before running it one has to add the required lines to xorg.conf for the keyboard layouts. Alternatively following command may also be used:
Quote
setxkbmap -option grp:switch,grp:shifts_toggle,grp_led:scroll us,de,it
which will load english, german and italian keyboard. This is just an example. Replace us, de, it by the codes of the keyboard layouts required by you.

If some variant of the keyboard is to be used the command will change to:
Quote
setxkbmap -option grp:switch,grp:shifts_toggle,grp_led:scroll 'us,ru(phonetic)'
which will load us and russian (phonetic variant).

Hi, kagashe!
Thanks for ru (phonetic)! how can i find other keyboard? ua, cyrilic1251 (win1251)?

Following variants of 'ua' are available:
Quote
phonetic        ua: Phonetic
typewriter      ua: Typewriter
winkeys         ua: Winkeys
unicode         ua: Unicode
rstu            ua: Standard RSTU
rstu_ru         ua: Standard RSTU on Russian layout
homophonic      ua: Homophonic
cyrillic is not there in ua (Ukraine) but it is there in az (Azerbaijan) and me (Montenegro).

You can find the complete list of variants in /usr/local/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.lst
