Xenialpup 7.5, 32bit, frugal installation on a flash stick with a save file.

When system boots, previously set keyboard variant and settings load properly, but the keyboard layout (I use Bulgarian) doesn't loads to xorg.conf. Any ideas?

These are the xorg.conf settings when system boots:
Code:

Option      "XkbLayout" "us" #xkeymap0
#Option      "XkbVariant" ",phonetic" #xkbvariant0
Option      "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp,grp:alt_shift_toggle"


And this is how it should be:
Code:

Option      "XkbLayout" "us,bg" #xkeymap0
#Option      "XkbVariant" ",phonetic" #xkbvariant0
Option      "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp,grp:alt_shift_toggle"

I use Mouse/Keyboard Wizard from "Menu > Setup"
1. Advanced configuration
2. Layouts > add > Bulgaria
3. Layout variant > Bulgarian (traditional phonetic)
4. Options tab > Group Shift/lock behavior > alt_shift_toggle
5. Yes - to apply changes

After these settings, keyboard layouts work perfectly. Then I do some other settings and make a save file when shutting down. Next time when I boot the system, Alt+Shift does change the keyboard layouts. I checked out the xorg.conf and I saw that additional layout "Bulgarian" is missing. The strange thing is that "Layout Variant" and "Options" are saved properly.
So every time system boots, I should use Mouse/Keyboard Wizard to add again Bulgarian layout.

Hello dustedwax.

I had a similar problem with my qc keyboard. With the help of a friend on this forum
I solved it by writing a little script for /root/Startup. This little script loads my keyboard
at boot. It goes like this:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# /root/Startup/qc2.sh
####
setxkbmap -model pc105 -layout ca -variant fr
I think the parameters explain themselves?
-- The model of my keyboard is a 105 keys keyboard
-- The keyboard layout is ca (meaning:Canada)
-- The variant is fr (meaning: French-Canada)

Can you adapt / imitate this for your keyboard / language?

IHTH

Yeah, mate! I could do a work-around script, as well... But the bug still exists, and in addition it exists in every puppy linux I've ever tested.

For example: In tarhpup 6.0.5, keyboard layouts, variants and settings load properly to xorg.conf, but it seems they don't apply. You need to run Mouse/Keyboard Wizard every time system boots, go to Advanced Configuration and just click "Yes" to apply changes.
In xenialpup 7.5, keymap-set script (on /usr/sbin) is re-written. Now everything loads perfectly on boot except for previously set additional keyboard layout and I have to add it every time system boots using Mouse/Keyboard Wizard... Simple things complex... So the fun goes on...
