[SOLVED] KDE 4.2 kxkb does not work anymore

I have such problem
In my KDE4 kxkb do not switch layouts anymore becouse when I switch layout icon does not change in system tray while layuot shanges and I have one of my layouts in all programs. In kxkb settings window I selected "swith layout for one window"
It`s seems that X.org reads switching options from xorg.conf directly
How can I repair kxkb?

Sorry for my English

Re: [SOLVED] KDE 4.2 kxkb does not work anymore

the cause is libxi 1.2.0. Downgrade it to 1.1.4 and everything will be fine. I uploaded it here: http://ikelk.lt/items/8O7g1d7Zsh - just hit the button "Siųstis"

Any idea, where to find an x86_64 package???

Re: [SOLVED] KDE 4.2 kxkb does not work anymore

You should use this PKGBUILD:

# $Id$
# Maintainer: Alexander Baldeck <alexander@archlinux.org>
# Contributor: Jan de Groot <jgc@archlinux.org>
pkgname=libxi
pkgver=1.1.4
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="X11 Input extension library"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
url="http://xorg.freedesktop.org"
depends=('libxext')
makedepends=('pkgconfig')
options=(!libtool)
license=('custom')
source=(${url}/releases/individual/lib/libXi-${pkgver}.tar.bz2)
md5sums=('7f68180d47b1c28a44718c502ab3bd52')

build() {
  cd "${srcdir}/libXi-${pkgver}"
  ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc || return 1
  make || return 1
  make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install || return 1

  install -m755 -d "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}"
  install -m644 COPYING "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/" || return 1
}

But it seems that it's not architecture dependent from this PKGBUILD, you could try the i686 package.

Anyway, we can't mark this issue as solved. Who needs an update which just breaks your system? I think maintainers should return the old version

EDIT: I've found the package itself: http://ikelk.lt/items/0ATBPTIeGv. Hit the button "Siųstis" smile

Re: [SOLVED] KDE 4.2 kxkb does not work anymore

Downgrade libxi don't work for me.

After package's been downgraded I have:
* Don't work the 'per application' feature: when I switch between applications the keyboard layout switches to default value.
* Flag' isn't changed if I change the keyboard layout.

Sorry if it sounds obvious, but did you restart X after the downgrade? The downgrade worked for me. I just installed the previous package from /var/cache/pacman/pkg.

It's already there, but nothing seems to change. Or is it because I blacklisted the libxi? big_smile

It's because they don't know what caused that when they posted it. Here it is - http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/13188. And I saw that thread after i've found that libxi is causing it, someone there found it before me hmm

No problem smile Yes, I restarted X after downgrading. Then I reboot computer.

Last night I removed keyboard applet and configured hal. Now layouts is working. Maybe it's not libxi bug's or not libxi only bug.

P.S.
Sorry for gramma mistakes I just learn English.

Re: [SOLVED] KDE 4.2 kxkb does not work anymore

New, downgraded libxi (1.1.4-2) didn't solve problem with layout changing.
