Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!


Hello to All.

Did you know how to add russian and UK keyboard layout to my OpenSuse 11.4.

My WM is LXDE.

Modification of file "90-keyboard"../or whatever/ in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d don`t resolve the problem.

Thank you.

    I use Gnome and I know that the default for SUSE is KDE, but in Gnome going to System-->Preferences-->Keyboard lets me set up alternate keyboards. KDE should have something similar. Modifying .conf files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d doesn't work. Most, if not all, the files there are auto-generated and overwritten.
    KDE should have something similar, the one in Gnome brings up a keyboard on the screen and lets you modify it any way you like. Even if you simply want to just add the standard Russian and UK keyboards.

    Ah, guess I missed the LXDE part. Sorry. Let us know how their LXDE compares, I'm curious.
