    Some of the keyboard switching services aren't working in my coLinux. I can switch using keyboard shortcuts, but not using the setxkbmap command. I get the message

    XKB extension not present on :1.0

    Google does not return any useful information for this message.

    Can anybody explain this?

    How do I fix it?

    Is there a workaround?
