[CLOSED] Unable to change to right keyboard layout

Post by DokStook »

Hello,

Since I installed ArcoLinux I have been trying to add new keyboard layout to Bulgarian Phonetic, but have been unable to do so. The GUI that comes pre-installed (xfce-keyboard-settings) does't work at all. Using

Code: Select all

setxkbmap -model pc104 -layout bg,us -variant phonetic -option grp:alt_shift_toggle
allows me to add Bulgarian layout but it is the normal one that I don't know how to use but also disables all the system shortcuts. It says the layout is added but it isn't:

Code: Select all

setxkbmap -print -verbose 10
Setting verbose level to 10
locale is C
Trying to load rules file ./rules/evdev...
Trying to load rules file /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev...
Success.
Applied rules from evdev:
rules:      evdev
model:      pc104
layout:     bg,us
variant:    phonetic
options:    grp:alt_shift_toggle,terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp
Trying to build keymap using the following components:
keycodes:   evdev+aliases(qwerty)
types:      complete
compat:     complete
symbols:    pc+bg+us:2+inet(evdev)+group(alt_shift_toggle)+terminate(ctrl_alt_bksp)
geometry:   pc(pc104)
xkb_keymap {
	xkb_keycodes  { include "evdev+aliases(qwerty)"	};
	xkb_types     { include "complete"	};
	xkb_compat    { include "complete"	};
	xkb_symbols   { include "pc+bg+us:2+inet(evdev)+group(alt_shift_toggle)+terminate(ctrl_alt_bksp)"	};
	xkb_geometry  { include "pc(pc104)"	};
};
Please help

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your reply! This only shows how to change the layout and not how to add another one.

Ah bon...

Did you check if there are issues with your keyboard on the xfce bug website.

Did you try Plasma? That one is quite complete.

Thanks,
This helps only for Plasma session. Guess I'll have to change sessions every time I need Bulgarian. Closing now!
