After upgrade from snv_134, keyboard layout is sent as US-English when I have a French Keyboard.
Cannot find how to set it right.

History

#1 Updated by none none almost 5 years ago

kdb is now configured by a SMF service (not /etc/default/kbd anymore) since b145.

# svccfg
svc:> select keymap:default
svc:/system/keymap:default> setprop keymap/layout = Brazilian
svc:/system/keymap:default> exit

Ok I set the French kkbd layout with svcadm -s system/keymap.
Shouldn't the keyboard layout be automatically set after upgrade ?

https://defect.opensolaris.org/bz/show_bug.cgi?id=15678 was the bug tracking installer handling of the new system/keymap service, might provide some insight into why it's not being populated for upgrades.

http://bugs.opensolaris.org/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6976214 is the upstream bug for this issue. I'll look into making the method script smarter.
