    cannot add keyboard layout

    First of, are locales necessary in order to use keyboard layouts ?
    In order to save space, I've removed all locales but the en_*.
    After an upgrade to Kubuntu 9.04, the Romanian layout didn't show in the layout switcher, but Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic and German did (and work just fine).. though another strange thing happened. I removed the Norwegian layout and was no longer able to add it back (the add button is active but does nothing). Actually I cannot add any other layout.
    I've added RO locale but to no avail. And I cannot change the layout list with setxkbmap (strangely, "setxkbmap no" works, though no doesn't appear on the layout list),
    I wanted to edit xorg.conf, but the keyboard section is commented by aptitude and it mentions HAL as the prefered way.

    output of
    setxkbmap -print :
    xkb_keymap {
    xkb_keycodes { include "evdev+aliases(qwerty)" };
    xkb_types { include "complete" };
    xkb_compat { include "complete" };
    xkb_symbols { include "pc+us+se:2+de:3+is:4+inet(evdev)+group(alt_shift_ toggle)" };
    xkb_geometry { include "pc(pc105)" };
    };

    setxkbmap -model pc105 -layout us,se,de,no,is,ro -v 10
    Setting verbose level to 10
    locale is C

    Applied rules from evdev:
    model: pc105
    layout: us,se,de,no,is,ro
    Trying to build keymap using the following components:
    keycodes: evdev+aliases(qwerty)
    types: complete
    compat: complete
    symbols: pc+us+se:2+de:3+no:4+inet(evdev)
    geometry: pc(pc105)


    I'm using Kubuntu 9.04 (KDE 4.3.1, though I don't think it's a KDE issue).

    The problem is a bug in /usr/bin/kxkb: http://www.mail-archive.com/debian-q.../msg25253.html that doesn't allow more than 4 layouts to be set.
