Known bugs

Here is a list of known bugs. Those bugs do not have a fix yet. If you know how to fix one of them, please email the author.

  1. Xorg RECORD extension is severely broken since Xorg 1.6: see bugs http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20500 and http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=21971. As a result, Florence does not track hardware keyboard changes as it should and does not work properly with Xorg 1.6. Workaround: please configure Florence without the xrecord extension (by not using the --with-xrecord option of the configure command). This bug has been fixed in latest Xorg versions.

  2. This bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg-server/+bug/837456 makes the keyboard layout switch to US when a key is pressed in some circumstances. Workaround is to use setxkbmap or add a new layout, as explained in the bug report.
