This is my first time posting to this board although I have been using 
kde for over ten years. Kudos and much gratitude to the kde team.

I have a strange problem with kde's keyboard layout selector applet. If 
I add, for example, French to the list, it works properly, I can click 
on the icon to toggle back and forth or right-click to select the one I 
want. If I select Swiss French, on the other hand, I cannot toggle to it 
(I get an "off" icon when it's turn comes around) and in the right-click 
menu I do not see the words "French Swiss", although I do see the 
"(basic)" description.

Also, entering "/usr/X11R6/bin/setxkbmap -model logicink -layout fr_CH 
-variant basic" in a console works correctly, so I think this must be a 
kde thing.

Thanks in advance for any ideas,
