Description

This module provides a simple setup of Xorg. At the moment, it only installs Xorg Server and provides an option for specifying the keyboard layout.

Setup

What xorg affects

The following packages will be installed:

  • xorg-server

If the keyboard layout is specified (via the keyboard_layout parameter), then the following packages will also be installed:

  • libxkbcommon

Beginning with xorg

To install Xorg server, you only need:

include xorg

Usage

To just install Xorg server, you only need:

include xorg

To set the keyboard layout, use the keyboard_layout parameter. This controls the layout as described in https://www.freedesktop.org/software/systemd/man/localectl.html. For example, to set it to GB (UK):

class { 'xorg' :
  keyboard_layout => 'gb',
}

Limitations

This has been designed for and tested on Arch Linux.
