[Strange Bug] Keyboard Layout Reset [SOLVED]
« on: June 21, 2014, 07:37:35 am »
A strange bug is happening on my Peppermint4 machine o_O

I normally use an Italian layout.
The other day I went into Preferences > Keyboard Layout > Tools > Show/Hide Profiles > Options  and activated the Composite Key Position so that I could have umlauts letters.

Since then, every time I reboot my pc the Key Layout resets to Italian Georgian ... which looks totally alien because uses weird symbols.

What could be causing this? O_o

@Hasimir0

Peppermint 5 is due for release on Monday 23rd June .. are you planning on moving to it ?

The reason I ask is there have been some changes to how keyboard layouts are achieved which *may* (or may not) solve your issue .. I'm just wondering if people should spend time looking for a solution if you're planning to upgrade ?

Unrelated question: why is there an extra void post from "Peppermint OS Community Forum" between each regular user-post? o_O

They're not between every post.

Turn off your ad blocker (or add this forum to the whitelist) and you'll see.

Peppermint has to make some small amount of money from somewhere to pay out of pocket expenses, use of an ad blocker denies them a revenue stream to pay those expenses .. it's one thing to offer Peppermint for free, but another to 'pay' for giving it away .. wouldn't you agree ? ;)

Please don't think I'm having a go, just explaining why the adverts are there .. and that just putting up with them helps support Peppermint :)
