@FlorianJacob, please report problems at http://wiki.neo-layout.org/newticket or take a look at the existing issues at http://wiki.neo-layout.org/report

I discovered that I can't use my left Mod 3 key in the terminals anymore. :( The right Mod3 key does work, though.

Can anybody reproduce this? Or have an idea where the right place for that bug report would be?

coderkun commented on 2015-08-20 06:56

cocreature: updated to version 3-2.

cocreature commented on 2015-08-19 21:51

The sha256sum needs to be updated

@coderkun

Thanks! It worked now!

So why doesn't this happen with other packages? Because this has no version and only one file which is named the same for every version?
What could we potentially change?

coderkun commented on 2015-08-09 19:39

@figthcookie: It seems that you have an old version of neo.map in your build directory (“Found neo.map”). Please delete this file and run the build command again.

fightcookie commented on 2015-08-09 17:17

Since latest update, it doesn't build for me because of wrong checksums:

==> Retrieving sources...
-> Found neo.map
==> Validating source files with sha256sums...
neo.map ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build kbd-neo.

@DerFlob: There are no changes. I just think it is easier to download and the link might be more stable compared to the wiki page. It is also the official download link mentioned in the wiki¹.

DerFlob commented on 2015-02-17 14:44

I am, yes.
Do you know if there are any changes in the svn version of the source, compared to the old source?

coderkun commented on 2015-02-17 14:35

I adopted this package and changed the source to SVN and used sha256 instead of md5.

Is anyone using this package?

fordprefect commented on 2013-04-10 22:21

ah, thanks. i was not aware of that difference. i will check there.
thanks a lot!

jakob commented on 2013-04-10 21:43

Please be aware of the difference between console and X. You use different tools to set the keyboard layout in each environment. In console, it's "loadkeys XY" while in X it's "setxkbmap XY". Accordingly, both environments use different files to define the keyboard layouts. This package provides a console KEYMAP only, it thus has nothing to with the X one which is included in the file /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/de, which is part of the 'xkeyboard-config' package. The error with the Alt key must have something to do with that file or package. Have you checked the NEO bugtracker already? http://wiki.neo-layout.org/report

fordprefect commented on 2013-04-10 20:33

i also have problems with this.
when loading neo via 'setxkbmap de neo' it works in all applications (inside X), but the Alt key does not work anymore. also, as already mentioned here, this is not the way to do it.
when loading via 'loadkeys i368/qwertz/neo.map.gz' i get an error message saying

Couldn't get a file descriptor referring to the console

as normal user and

unknown keysym 'number_acronym'
loadkeys: /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwertz/neo.map.gz:190: addkey called with bad keycode -1

with sudo/as root.
is this a bug or a misconfiguration? what is the right way to enable neo in X?
thanks for maintaining this!

kbd-neo is only activated by "loadkeys neo" in console. setxkbmap doesn't have anything to do with kbd-neo…

Oops, thanks a lot for the clarification! :-)

Markus00000 commented on 2012-12-28 13:56

Does anyone else has the problem that activating Neo 2 breaks Mod4 (Windows key)?
I ran: setxkbmap de neo -option
As this command worked even before installing kbd-neo, I'm wondering if I am using the pre-installed Neo layout or the layout I installed with kbd-neo.

jakob commented on 2012-01-12 17:37

Cool! Thanks for maintaining this package!

@jakob thanks
changed the pkgbuild

jakob commented on 2012-01-11 12:21

Shouldn’t line 24 of the PKGBUILD read like:
cp -f neo.map\?format=raw neo.map
instead of yours:
cp -f ../neo.map\?format=raw neo.map

since at this stage, pwd=$srcdir already?

akurei commented on 2010-08-16 10:57

Your PKGBUILD uses the wrong path. I corrected it.
$ cat kbd-neo.patch
21c21
< install -m 664 -D neo.map.gz $pkgdir/usr/share/kbd/qwertz/neo.map.gz
---
> install -m 664 -D neo.map.gz $pkgdir/usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwertz/neo.map.gz
