kbd 1.15.5-1ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


kbd (1.15.5-1ubuntu1) raring; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian.  Remaining changes:
    - Add setfont, kbd_mode, and loadkeys to initramfs for console-setup.
    - Use ckbcomp to get the keyboard layout if other data files are not
    - Depend on console-setup, and remove config file; we now only support
      systems using console-setup and so it no longer serves a purpose. The
      removed config file for console-screen has changed names from
      /etc/init.d/console-screen.kbd.sh to /etc/init.d/kbd.
    - Change loadkeys to find any console not in raw mode when invoked
      without an explicit console parameter, in case the foreground console
      is in raw mode.
    - Simplify maintainer scripts for conffile removal, using new features
      in debhelper 8.1.0.
    - Add setvtrgb to kbd-udeb.
  * Fix incorrect keymap sanity check in loadkeys_ckbcomp.diff.

kbd (1.15.5-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release.
    - Drop the loadkeys_stdin patch introduced in 1.15.3-2 (included in this
    - The kbd tarball now ships with a basic implementation of vlock.  This
      program will not be included in the binary package.
    - resizecons is now built and installed on amd64, closes: #692014.  Also
      amend the manpages patch to explain the program’s absence on
      non-x86[_64] architectures in resizecons.8.
    - Build the Spanish messages again (dropped in 1.15.3-1).
  * Treat src/loadkeys.analyze.h (generated by flex, but also shipped in the
    orig tarball) specially in debian/rules so the clean target functions
    properly and the package can be built twice in a row.
  * Use dh-autoreconf to regenerate config.guess and config.sub during the
    build process, closes: #700119.  This introduces new build-deps on
    dh-autoreconf and autopoint and removes the explicit dependencies on
    autoconf and automake.  Thanks to Colin Watson <email address hidden> for
    the hint.
  * Update the source URL and the years of publication in debian/copyright and
    add a paragraph for the added vlock code.
  * New patch loadkeys_flex_stack, taken from upstream Git: Fix a regression
    in loadkeys.analyze.l which causes some keymap files to fail to load.
  * New patch dead2 by Samuel Thibault <email address hidden> to support
    KT_DEAD2 diacritics in loadkeys and dumpkeys, closes: #694169.  Thank you
    for the patch, Samuel!
  * Drop the “Skipping font and keymap setup” message from /etc/init.d/kbd
    because it’s really somewhat silly to log what the script isn’t doing.
  * Use a canonical URL for the Vcs-Git: field.
  * Bump Standards-Version: to 3.9.4, no changes necessary.
