Hi, I'm trying to get the "ca" (canadian french) keyboard layout from xfree, but I get the following problems (note that my XF86Config-4 file is valid, it worked with a Debian install with xfree.org's 4.3 version):
First, I get these errors in the output window (ctrl-alt-F1):
error opening security policy file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xserver/SecurityPolicy
Couldn't load xkb keymap, falling back to pre-xkb keymap.
I followed the symlinks to xserver dir, which points to /etc/X11.
It also complained about symbols not found. So I installed the XF86Config.dsl, and just loading it at startup (I have a frugal install with all I can pointed to a separate partition - mydsl, opt, home). With this, it goes a little further (it seems to add some files like keymaps and symbols), but it gives me this error:
sh: line 1: /usr/X11R6/xkb/xkbcomp: no such file or directory.
What can I do? this keyboard layout is vital for me since my primary use for this is to take notes in class... Anyone else had problems or success with this??
