 The version looking outdated - most of observed issues were already fixed.
 I thought that installoptionalpackage get the latest one. Are you using
 Alpha image or nightly builds?

 if you change the focus from Deskbar to other window the current keymap
 must be changed to current one for that team(process). So the observed
 behavior is correct.

 or by using the right-click menu gives focus to the Deskbar, which is why
 any method of changing keymap other than hotkeys seems useless right now.

 Yes, of course, I have understood why you decide that it not working. ;-)
 Probably it has no sense, but further improvements to this program has no
 sense too - this app lives just until the normal solution for Haiku will
 be implemented.

 needed?

 I'm going to update this optional package soon - so there are no sense to
 test outdated version. ;-) Just wait or get the new version here right
 now:

 
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dotmatrix4beos/files/Haiku%20Keymap%20Switcher/1.2.6/

 note that you need to use corresponding update-*.sh script to update your
 system on the fly. ;-)  Just exploding zip onto /boot can send your
 input_server to KDL. So, please, use the update script.
