CentOS6.4 And Apple Keyboard

I have just installed (with kikstart) CentOS6.4 on a PC which was previously running OpenSUSE (11.x). This PC has an apple keyboard and I’m unable to setup this keyboard. In .xsession-errors I get this messages :

Error: No Symbols named “latin9” in the include file
“macintosh_vndr/fr”
Exiting
Abandoning symbols file “(null)”

** (gnome-settings-daemon:8160): WARNING **: Could not activate the XKB
configuration Error: No Symbols named “latin9” in the include file
“macintosh_vndr/fr”
Exiting
Abandoning symbols file “(null)”

** (gnome-settings-daemon:8160): WARNING **: Could not activate the XKB
configuration

Google found on a RedHat forum that it seams to be an old known bug but do not find any update or workaround. I’ve several PC using Apple keyboards as users have also Apple laptops and they do not want to work with two different keyboards.

Thanks for your help or advices.

  • Hi John,

    I’m working from home today so I’ve ask the phd student to launch a PXE
    boot for a new full kikstart install with a PC keyboard and then try to configure the apple keyboard by hand. See the answers to your questions below.
