Keyboard Trouble in X
« on: March 22, 2008, 08:54:36 pm »

While in X I seem to have problems with the keyboard.

-- In xterm, Alt-(some key) does not give special character,

-- setxkbmap ?? gives error: "Error loading new keyboard description",

-- Ctrl-Alt-F* has no reaction,

Startx gives:

syntax error: line 1 of pc
The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
> Error:            Error interpreting include file "pc"
>                   Exiting
>                   Abandoning symbols file "default"
Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server
syntax error: line 1 of pc

I un/re-installed xkbcomp as well as xorg-server and it changed nothing.

-- vasmCC and vasm will not change keyboard setting while in X.

-- On console outside X vasm will change keyboard setting.

What could be amiss?

Thanks & regards
