    Thumbs down IME and Language Problems Upgrading to 8.04

    Hello forum,

    I have two problems in my keyboard after upgrading to 8.04 <Hardy Heron>. I would appreciate if anyone can help me solve the issues.

    First, I cannot start SCIM input method from the keyboard any more. The shortcut to bring up SCIM on my Japanese 106-key model is: <hankaku/zenkaku> key (to the left of <1>). Interestingly, I can toggle between IMEs by a keyboard shortcut once SCIM is activated and the default IME is in function.

    Second, my keyboard cannot switch between keyboards any more. I have a Hebrew keyboard installed side by side with an English keyboard but now I cannot toggle the Hebrew one. (There may be a way to select Hebrew from control panel or somewhere which I am ignorant of. Any info about this is also appreciated )

    Probably related to the two symptoms above is an error message that pops up at computer startups.

    HTML Code:
    Error activating XKB configuration.
    It can happen under various circumstances:
    - a bug in libxklavier library
    - a bug in X server (xkbcomp, xmodmap utilities)
    - X server with incompatible libxkbfile implementation
    X server version data:
    The X.Org Foundation
    If you report this situation as a bug, please include:
    - The result of xprop -root | grep XKB
    - The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd
    So the two results are below:
    xprop -root | grep XKB
    foo@bar:~$ xprop -root | grep XKB
    _XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xorg", "jp106", "jp,jp", "latin,", "grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll"
    _XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xorg", "jp106", "jp,jp", "latin,", "grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll"
    gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd
    foo@bar:~$ gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd
     layouts = [jp	latin,jp	,il]
     model = 
     overrideSettings = true
     options = []
