Description Christoph Wickert 2005-11-18 21:08:58 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:

Xfce XKB layout switch plugin for the Xfce panel. It displays the current 
keyboard layout, and refreshes when layout changes. The layout can be 
switched by simply clicking on the plugin. For now the keyboard layouts 
cannot be configured from the plugin itself, they should be set in the 
XF86Config file or some other way (e.g. setxkbmap).

rpmlint clean
license BSD included

Comment 2 Christoph Wickert 2005-12-17 02:43:45 UTC
Thanks for reviewing so many of my packages.

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2013-09-27 21:48:04 UTC
Would you folks be ok with maintaining or me (co)maintaining a branch of this for EPEL6?

From the fedora xfce list: 

"xfce4-xkb-plugin is buildable in version, just a small change
so that the xklavier patch (centos 6 has xklavier 4) applies. 

$ diff xfce4-xkb-plugin.spec 
< %if 0%{?fedora} > 11
> %if 0%{?fedora} > 11 || 0%{?rhel} >= 6

It seems to work correctly (layouts are present, short-cut for switching

Comment 4 Christoph Wickert 2013-09-28 15:51:12 UTC
I don't think I want to maintain is in EPEL.

Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2013-09-30 22:20:35 UTC
Do you mind if I do so? Or do you think there's some reason it will be over difficult to maintain in EPEL?
