Description Šimun Mikecin 2007-07-26 07:30:01 UTC
Recent update of x11/xkeyboard-config port to version 1.0 broke xkb support.
This shows up in Xorg.0.log:
(WW) Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back to pre-XKB keymap

And running 'setxkbmap' on the command line shows this error:
Error loading new keyboard description


Fix is simple, just do:

ln -s /var/lib/xkb /usr/local/share/X11/xkb/compiled

This should be done during port install and removed during port deinstall.
How-To-Repeat: 1. Try running setxkbmap
2. Try to go back to ttyv1 from X using ctrl+alt+F1
