Re: Couldn't load XKB keymap [SOLVED]

I had this very same problem a while ago, for anyone who has it, make sure your /dev/sda3  (or whatever you have mounted on / ) isn't nearly full. To compile the keymap there must be space to write, if there is no space it can't.

pacman -Sc should clear up enough to fix it.


I never know what to make my signature...

Thx Jub, that's just the answer I needed. I've only got a 30GB in here and the laptop's just a cheap (Celeron M  1.4) toy,  so I might have to shrink my Ubuntu volume.

Good luck to the rest of you.

Re: Couldn't load XKB keymap [SOLVED]

Okay, I happen to be undergoing this exact issue after an update last night, but I'd assum with almost 2Gb free on / that I should have plenty of space to compile the keymap. What other solutions can there be to solving this issue?

[ SOLVED ]

For anyone who's recent updates may have caused similar issues, updating last night somehow removed my /usr/bin/xkbcomp file, reinstalling xorg-xkbcomp fixed this issue.

Well said. I've just had this issue. What was weird for me was that I could start X as root but not as a regular user. That's because root can write to a disk that is advertised as 100% when it isn't really (there's some capacity reserved for root to be able to get out of trouble).

I wish the logs could explain more of what is going on. If the log could say "Can't write to / (no space)" or something like that it would save us mere mortals from an hour of fishing for errors...

Anyway that you jub, you just made my day smile

Re: Couldn't load XKB keymap [SOLVED]

I'm on an openbsd machine and had the same problem coming out of a full-backup. For me it turned out that /tmp permissions wasn't set to 777, changing that was the solution. I pretty much had the exact same failure log in Xorg.log. It For me xkbcomp could not write it's output server-0.xkm, which is in /tmp.

I suggest getting xkbcomp to work. Check permission PATH and everything you can. xkbcomp is pretty self-contained and usually isn't symlinked to- but it could be. check symlinks as well.

Good luck and when you find solutions please post. The more we know about Xorg's startup process the better.
