I'm getting a conflict when updating now:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
libxcvt: /usr/bin/cvt exists in filesystem (owned by xorg-server-bug865)
libxcvt: /usr/share/man/man1/cvt.1.gz exists in filesystem (owned by xorg-server-bug865)

Is this going to be solved by this package or libxcvt, or do I need to do something manually?

 gpg --recv-keys --keyserver ED2ED19F85B3682C

It's not working.

Or, you might manually add the key like this:

 gpg --recv-keys --keyserver ED2ED19F85B3682C

@kyak, thank you for updating!

@vox, try changing the keyserver by adding the line keyserver hkp:// to /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/gpg.conf

Hi! First of all thanks for maintaining this patch! I have a problem with the latest version though :(

"==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg... xorg-server-1.20.11.tar.bz2 ... FAILED (unknown public key ED2ED19F85B3682C) ==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!"

Thanks you, man. You're my lifesaver.

Please note that I'm following Arch upstream xorg-server package as close as possible. The empty PGP key has appeared in this commit:

Whoever as affected should consider reporting to Arch bug tracker.

If you have a problem like 2dorf4u a comment below:

This PKGBUILD has an empty pgp key in requirements! To properly install if for the first time you would need to edit it: (remove line with empty key)

yay --editmenu -S xorg-server-bug865

Note: while it should work, for me it didn't, I was lazy to investigate. Another way would be:

yay -G xorg-server-bug865
#edit the PKGBUILD
makepkg -si

If you are updating, then you should already have all required keys, so simply do NOT import keys (type 'n') here:

:: PGP keys need importing:
-> , required by: xorg-server-bug865
==> Import? [Y/n]

I am running into an unspecified problem importing keys when upgrading:

:: (1/1) Parsing SRCINFO: xorg-server-bug865

:: PGP keys need importing:

This package only works for Ctrl+Shift, doesn't it? I tried using it with RShift for switching layout, but RShift+letter doesn't result in typing a capital letter anywhere (I tried Alacritty, Emacs, Firefox, Chromium and gave up). Same with RCtrl, it types a letter instead of doing whatever a Ctrl+letter shortcut should do. However, keyboard layout switches when I release a RShift/RCtrl, not when I press on it, and it works as expected for Ctrl+Shift and combinations such as Ctrl+Shift+T.
