I think that your solution would have worked
if KDE had permitted me to select "Include
Latin Group". However, this selection remained
grayed-out in the keyboard layout configuration
no matter what I tried. However, your suggestion
helped lead me to the solution which was to edit
the file xfree86 in /etc/X11/xkb/rules/. There
are three lines near the top of this file that
are commented and start with !nonlatin followed
by abbreviations for various nonlatin-alphabet
languages. The file contains instructions to
uncomment the !nonlatin lines when using nonlatin
This solution is a little convoluted and I suspect
that if I could have activated the option
you suggested it would have done what I needed.
Can you suggest what I should do so that I can
have available the KDE Control Center option
to include the latin group?
