Hi Nadav, see the previous post on the list.  ldm-2.0.7 should make it 
possible to specify these XKB* options from lts.conf with ldm logins. 
But read below...

It appears that you have some bad syntax above.  I checked with the 
Debian and Ubuntu maintainers of LTSP and they agree.  You shouldn't 
have more than one XKBLAYOUT, and XKBVARIANT beginning with a comma 
character appears to be wrong.

Anyway, please give ldm-2.0.7 a try with fixed syntax and let the list 
know if it does the job.
