I am using Arch Linux (installed from a Live CD) and I am having trouble with the keyboard in Xorg. I am mostly sure it's a matter of configuration, I'm attaching my 10-keyboard.conf file:

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "system-keyboard"
Driver "kbd"
MatchIsKeyboard "on"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbLayout" "gb"
Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
Option "XkbVariant" "latin"
EndSection

I need to have the GB layout every time I reboot my computer, but I don't know if I am missing something. I also don't know if I have to use pc104 or pc105, I have a ThinkPad T400.

Modern Xorg does not require much configuring, and it is recommended to run without a configuration as the configuration language is very intricate and error-prone. Instead, try running setxkbmap gb once the X server has launched to see if the keyboard can be configured that way. If that works, place the command in your .xinitrc so that it is executed automatically every time you start the X server.
