how should I write multiple XkbOptions in xorg.conf? I've tried "option,option,option", "option, option, option", "option option option" and none of these worked - only the first option was executed.

    It should be the first, commas with no spaces. Can you post the exact line you are having trouble with?

In the options there is an example generated by X11:

Option        "XkbOptions"    "lv3:ralt_switch,compose:caps"

As we can see it is separated by commas and no spaces. Also the option is a command a colon and a key. Again, no spaces.

This comes from this file:


and was setup that way as I was installing Ubuntu.
