Layouts...

Hello to All.
Did you know how to add russian and UK keyboard layout to my OpenSuse 11.4.
My WM is LXDE.
Modification of file "90-keyboard"../or whatever/ in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d don`t resolve the problem.
Thank you.

I use Gnome and I know that the default for SUSE is KDE, but in Gnome going to System-->Preferences-->Keyboard lets me set up alternate keyboards. KDE should have something similar. Modifying .conf files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d doesn't work. Most, if not all, the files there are auto-generated and overwritten.
KDE should have something similar, the one in Gnome brings up a keyboard on the screen and lets you modify it any way you like. Even if you simply want to just add the standard Russian and UK keyboards.

Ah, guess I missed the LXDE part. Sorry. Let us know how their LXDE compares, I'm curious.
