Since I upgraded to xfce 4.6, I'm having troubles with keyboard layout
and shortcuts configuration.
At first, /etc/X11/Xmodmap was ignored, so I lost the possibility to use
the media keys of my laptop.
I tried with xmodmap /etc/X11/Xmodmap, but this kind of freezes xfce:
I can move the mouse, but the pointer doesn't change its shape and I can't
click anything; hitting caps lock on the keyboard toggles the led, but the
only thing I can do is swap to terminal with Ctrl+Alt+Fn or kill X. Still,
applications keep running fine, I just can't use them.
I can consistently reproduce this.
Then I tried selecting "Use system defaults" from the keyboard
configuration; I got my media keys back, but application shortcuts were
ignored. I deselected "Use system defaults" and rebooted, but still the
shortcuts are ignored. Actually, I see that the kyeboard layout is still not
being set by xfce: I can choose any layout, I'm stick with the one X loads.
I tried moving away my Xmodmap, but I just get the default X layout, and
can't change it.
I tried resetting the shortcuts (which I don't have a way to save, anyway,
and this is a regression from 4.4), to no avail.
