I see the distro as borderline useless without this, and as a side point I'm completely baffled by the choice of making the wrench so difficult to get working when it worked fine in 2008.9.

I believe all I need to do now is get the keyboard selector menu within the wrench to let me select the default keyboard instead of None, and then I set QT to not export its keyboard and I should be good.

I have been looking in the e.cfg and related files and the freerunner.edc file within the asu theme, and the files within the illume theme, but I see no mention of the keyboard menu.  Also the preconfigured binaries on the enlightenment.cfg wiki page just bring me to a blank white screen, and when I try to use eet to view the source of the e.cfg file included it just says it cannot be opened for reading, so I'm thinking the files are just corrupt.
