I recently updated to KDE 4.5 (from 3.5.10) and now I'm facing several small
problems while trying to get my environment back.
One problem seems to be that /usr/bin/kxkb is no longer installed with the
systemsettings package. And I cannot select "evdev-driven keyboard" in the
keyboard layout settings in systemsettings / kcontrol.
Also the "keyboard service" or whatever it is called in english cannot be
started in the "system services" section. When I try to start it manually it
complains about "kxkb" being missing.
Does anyone know what package contains kxkb in 4.5 ? On another machine I
still have have 4.4 installed and there it is installed with the
Starting with KDE 4.5.0 "keyboard"& "kxkb" modules were merged into a
new kcm_keyboard service. It is part of kde-base/systemsettings
From the readme "This is new project to replace keyboard (kcmmisc) and
kxkb to manage keyboard harware configuration and layouts."
Sorry I don't have any more info than that.
Well it helped anyway. When I was looking for this readme you mentioned I had a look at the source code and found that
~/.Xmodmap was parsed but /etc/X11/Xmodmap was not.
Since I only had a script in KDE's autostart directory that applied the system Xmodmap, everytime I suspended the
machine the modifications were gone after resume (input hotplug issue I guess). Now I copied the the file into my home
folder and it is applying it automatically during resume.
Now I only wonder why that keyboard layout list doesn't contain the "Evdev driven keyboard" entry.
Btw. I updated KDE to 4.5.2 today and now KDE's "keyboard service" is runnung ...
So thanks again!
