Default Swiss-French Keyboard in Xubuntu 12.04

Hello!

I am trying to install Xubuntu 12.04 on an old PC. Everything works fine, except that

I am unable to find the Swiss-french keyboard in the keyboard layout list.



Since I am living in Switzerland and speaking *- and typing- french, this is a absolute MUST for me.



The command:



setxkbmap -model pc105 -layout ch -variant fr



works fine, albeit obviously only for the current session.

This in my opinion means that the swiss-french layout IS present somewhere

in the system.



But how do I get it permanently, not being able to use the desktop application?

I have tried editing the /etc/default/keyboard file from:



XKBMODEL = "pc105"

XKBLAYOUT = "ch"

XKBVARIANT = ""

XKBOPTIONS =""



to:



XKBMODEL = "pc105"

XKBLAYOUT = "ch"

XKBVARIANT = "fr"

XKBOPTIONS =""



but to no avail!



What am I overlooking??



Regards, Pao

Hi. You have 2 options from within Settings Manager:

1. go to Session and Startup and add the setxkbmap command as an autostart app
OR
2. go to Keyboard and then Layout and try to set it up from there

OK! Problem solved!

Instead of looking for the Swiss-french keyboard on either "Swiss"
or "French", I had to look on "German"

To us, member of the french-speaking minority, this does not appear
very palatable!
