That could be possible, of course. On FreeBSD, with the keyboard layout configured the old-fashioned way via /etc/X11/xorg.conf, KDE does respect the system-wide settings. I would expect KDE to behave the same on CentOS. However, I only had to deal with easy layouts like "de" and "us" so far; Swiss-French might pose a bit more of a challenge. ;-) Patrick -- If you'd like to send me a private message, make sure to remove the "_lists" part from my address.
