5.167. libxklavier

Updated libxklavier packages that fix three bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The libxklavier library provides a high-level API for the X Keyboard Extension (XKB) that allows extended keyboard control. This library supports X.Org and other commercial implementations of the X Window system. The library is useful for creating XKB-related software, such as layout indicators.

Bug Fixes

BZ#657726, BZ#766645
Prior to this update, an attempt to log into the server using an NX or VNC client triggered an XInput error that was handled incorrectly by the libxklavier library due to the way how the NoMachine NX Free Edition server implements XInput support. As a consequence, the gnome-settings-daemon aborted unexpectedly. This update modifies the XInput error handling routine in the libxklavier library. Now, the library ignores this error and the gnome-settings-daemon runs as expected.
BZ#726885
Prior to this update, the keyboard layout indicator did not show if the layout was changed for the first time. As a consequence, users could, under certain circumstances, not log in. This update modifies the gnome-settings-daemon so that the indicator now shows the correct layout.
All users of libxklavier are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
