I've recently installed Gentoo using the standard SELinux profile, and setup a basic X11 environment on top, using only lxpanel, compiz and emerald. As far as I can tell, starting this X session is handled by xinitrc, however, I can't find anything in xinitrc's configuration that indicates it's using a keyboard map of any kind, despite the fact that my keyboard is set to US while in X sessions, and UK while in bash. Everything I've found so far suggests that xorg.conf handles everything to do with X sessions, including keyboard layouts. However, the only place I find any xorg.conf files is in /usr/share, not /etc/X11. In fact, there is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d folder at all, so I'm left wondering what is handling keyboard layouts for X sessions, if not xinitrc. Any ideas?

Right click lxpanel and select Add / Remove panel items, see http://i.imgur.com/t1nj06k.png
