Changing keyboard locale in xorg.conf

Hello,

I seem to be unable to change my keyboard locale to 'uk'. I am using the latest release of XFCE. I never had this issue with GNOME and KDE.

From xorg.conf:
---------------------------------------------

Section "InputDevice"
    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Keyboard0"
    Driver         "kbd"
       Option      "XkbdLayout" "uk"
------------------------------------------------

I have also tried using 'gb', however, this too doesn't work.

If it isn't possible to modify this setting with xorg.conf using this method, then does another one exist?

Re: Changing keyboard locale in xorg.conf

Maybe this is related with the xorg version (the configuration changed starting from 1.8 if I'm not wrong).

This is my own config (note the InputClass section and the MatchIsKeyboard option):

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "spanish keyboard"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        Option "xkblayout" "es"
        Option "xkbmodel" "pc102"
        Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
EndSection

PS: The kernel & Hardware issues is not the best forum for this question.

Would you kindly explain to me what these options do? (most notably of which is the 'MatchIsKeyboard' option)

I now realise that. Thank you. 'keyboard' was on my mind when I decided to select the forum.

(I will try these as soon as the other computer is available)
