My operating system is Windows 7. I installed cygwin. I wanted to start the XWin Server with the startxwin command and it terminates with the error:
Couldn't open compiled keymap file /var/lib/xkb/server-0.xkm (EE) XKB: Failed to load keymap. Loading default keymap instead. (EE) Couldn't open compiled keymap file /var/lib/xkb/server-0.xkm XKB: Failed to compile keymap Keyboard initialization failed. This could be a missing or incorrect setup of xkeyboard-config. Fatal server error: Failed to activate core devices. Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file. winDeinitMultiWindowWM - Noting shutdown in progress startxwin: giving up startxwin: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused startxwin: server error
When I check the location
/var/lib/xkb/ there is no file by the name
server-0.xkm. How do I create a compiled keymap again?
In http://www.x.org/archive/X11R7.5/doc/man/man1/xkbcomp.1.html it says that the command
xkbcomp works as
xkbcomp [option] source [ destination ] and under the optons it says
-xkb Generate a source description of the keyboard as output (.xkb extension). -xkm Generate a compiled keymap file as output (.xkm extension).
But to generate a source description as output or compiled keymap as output it asks for an input file and I don't know what input to give. If someone could help me out in creating this server-0.xkm it would be highly appreciated.
