Description Arkadiusz Miskiewicz 2005-01-30 09:14:02 UTC
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "kbd"
        Option      "XkbRules" "xorg"
        Option      "XkbModel" "ibook"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "pl"

According to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/rules/xorg for "XkbModel" "ibook" 
$maclaptop     *       =       macintosh/us(extended)+apple(laptop_bad_switch)+macintosh/%l%(v)
it looks for pl kbdlayout in macintosh subdir.

The solution seems simple:
cp /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/pl /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/macintosh/
cp /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/pl2 /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/macintosh/

Did you try it? Did it work for you? I would not like to commit anything without
testing. And since I would be unable to test it properly I'd like some

Yes, I was using it for over a year. Worked well (I was using it with ISO model 
of internal keyboard and then when it broke with replacement US keyboard, too).

Marking broken (status null/blank) bugs in xorg with no activity in a long time as fixed. Please reopen if you think it's necessary, but first do a search if a similar bug report is already filed and in a NEW/ASSIGNED state. These bugs do not currently show in most search results as they do not have any status.
