I have problems changing the model. I did some tests and I can reproduce
the issue. Here is the relevant part of xorg.conf (I don't use xmodmap
,----[ from xorg.conf ]
| Section "InputDevice"
| Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
| Driver "kbd"
| Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
| Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
| Option "XkbLayout" "ro"
The steps to reproduce it:
rm -rf .config
Xfce Menu -> Settings -> Keyboard: Layout tab and chose model (Thinkpad
R61 for me)
result: special keys don't work
special keys still don't work
now in the keyboard settings I choose some other model and then again
the Thinkpad R61
special keys work! but only until Xfce is restarted when the model dance
needs to be performed again.
If I choose the corect model in xorg.conf it will be shown in keyboard
settings after removing .config and will work correctly. I will be using
this solution anyway, but I could do more tests if needed.
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
