I know that fremantle/N900 has a reduced set of xkb layouts that does not
include pc105. This precludes using a bluetooth keyboard. I know that the
long-term plan is to integrate the N900-specific layouts into the complete set
of layouts in the upstream xkb-data.
For now, I would like to get just pc105 working so that I can use a bluetooth
keyboard, particularly just an iGo Stowaway, an IRXON, or a Freedom Universal.
I am willing to hack this a bit. I have the complete /usr/share/X11/xkb
directory from chinook/N810. And all three of these bluetooth keyboards work
with chinook/N810. Can someone give me some pointers as to the simplest way to
merge just the minimal amount from the /usr/share/X11/xkb directory from
chinook/N810 with that on fremantle/N900 to get one of these keyboards working?
I tried copying the chinook/N810 files onto the N900 and then copying the
original fremantle/N900 files on top of that. The N900 keyboard still works
(when I first did that without copying the fremantle/N900 on top I bricked the
N900) but the bluetooth keyboards still don't work.
Thanks in advance,
