Slackware 13.37 – Xorg + Hal
The divorce was a long time coming. The papers are finally signed. Xorg has dumped hal and eloped with udev.
Keyboard layout modifications are back to (almost) normal – but instead of using /etc/X11/xorg.conf, we’re now using /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-keyboard-layout.conf.
To change your keyboard layout from US to GB (for example):
# vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-keyboard-layout.conf
Modify the file to replace:
Option “XkbLayout” “us”
Option “XkbLayout” “gb”
.. just as you would have done a few years ago with xorg.conf.
