Default X Keyboard layout problem

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=448196
This is a critical problem for anybody using a non-US keyboard layout
with LTSP.


LTSP on Debian uses ltsp-trunk/client/configure-x.sh to generate an
xorg.conf and mangle it to use an explicit keyboard layout before
running the actual X.


Fedora LTSP uses X autoconfiguration without an xorg.conf. This seems
to be working extremely well, except for cases like this where we need a
specific configuration option that differs from the X autoconfiguration.


Any ideas of what we can do?

Default X Keyboard layout problem

I think xorg.conf should be optional.

The default no xorg.conf should be able to handle simpler options
overlayed on top of the autoconfiguration. Keyboard layout and
resolution should be overridable. Extra fonts should be detected
automatically (you need xorg.conf options for this? huh?) Dual screen
might be a legitimate case where you need your own xorg.conf.

What if we need a lower/higher resolution than the one the auto configurator determines.

My site (with 300 LTSP clients) has lots of special needs in the xorg.conf, ie resolution, extra fonts, dual screen etc.

Xrandr may be the way to handle resolution after the X server starts.
