Keyboard layout configuration for Lubuntu 10.04 Beta1

For a (permanent) usa/greek keyboard configuration, using alt+shift for language switching:
  • sudo vi /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/05-evdev.conf
  • and modify
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "evdev keyboard catchall"
MatchIsKeyboard "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "evdev"
EndSection
to
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "evdev keyboard catchall"
MatchIsKeyboard "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "evdev"
Option "XkbLayout" "us,gr"
Option "XKbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
EndSection
Change gr above to your language symbols, to get the proper keyboard layout.

Kubuntu 9.10 upgrade to 10.04 Beta1

A minute ago, (almost) automatic upgrade of kubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 finished in my Dell XPS M1330. The only problem appeared after restarting laptop, because of the line:

none /dev/bus/usb usbfs devgid=125,devmode=664 0 0


in /etc/fstab.

Kubuntu complained that usbfs format is unknown and I had to boot from an ubuntu CD in recovery mode, to put this line in comments.

KDE4 is by far the most amazing 3D-based desktop and ubuntu becomes better and better every 6 months :)
