#2621 closed defect (notsugar)

Wrong keyboard layout

Reported by: tch Owned by: anish
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Dextrose Version: Unspecified
Severity: Unspecified Keywords: dx2 keyboard 11.3.0
Cc: bernie, dsd Distribution/OS: Dextrose
Bug Status: Assigned

Description

The keyboard layout is not properly set by default, and chooses the first one available (ie: Akan).

The weird thing is that, the layout works fine with every sugar text entry but with activities (ie: terminal).

The bug is also present in older dx2 builds.

The general sugar language layout is also fine (all texts are shown with the proper language). But the keyboard CP section still shows Akan (instead of spanish, in my case) and activities like terminal still present layout problems.

Replying to tch:

Ah, it's slowly starting to make sense. IIRC the keyboard CP section will sort the layouts alphabetically and use the first entry if it can't find a match.

Unless there's a good reason not to, we should just disable the keyboard CP section on XOs.

The problems with Terminal etc. would still need investigation, of course.

One use case for setting the keyboard on the XO is to be able to practice a language other than one one your XO keyboard supports: In Armenia, they are using a keyboard with Armenian and Latin characters, but would like the kids to be able to switch to Cyrillic when studying Russian.

It may well be that the XOs warrant a variant of this dialog which is different to a more generic one shipped on desktop distributions.
