I´ve been trying to change the default US keyboard layout. I need to modify some keys, so that I can add a few special symbols I use daily... I edit the us file in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols and save it.. but when I try to add the newly modified layout I get the following message:
Error activating XKB configuration. There can be various reasons for that. If you report this situation as a bug, include the results of xprop -root | grep XKB gsettings get org.gnome.libgnomekbd.keyboard model gsettings get org.gnome.libgnomekbd.keyboard layouts gsettings get org.gnome.libgnomekbd.keyboard options
Any help would be appreciated... tried this:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration sudo dpkg-reconfigure kbd
but it didn´t work..
