When I installed Debuntu i picked US as my country, and now when i try to change region/language/keyboard-layout to norwegian, Debuntu only suggests english. How can i install the Norwegian language pack to debuntu?
I use czech QWERTZ keyboard layout, but sometimes it accidentaly switches to (probably) english or US qwerty, so I am unable to write our national characters (which share the keys with numbers on laptop), it writes Y instead of Z etc.
So I am unable to write normal text. I looked in keyboard settings, but it seems to be ok:
layout is "česko with <|> key" - HP Pavilion ZT11xx - this seems to be OK and it worked without problems before this accidental switch.
there is no other layout than the mentioned one and in Layout settings (hope this is correct as I have this in Czech) I unchecked all boxes in Layout switching.
I absolutely have no idea where is the problem. Maybe it is some keybinding but did not find anything which could do this.
I use Debian Lenny with added a11y apps like Orca etc. called Vinux. I tried to ask there, but currently wihout success.
I've just installed jessie testing which comes with GNOME 3.14. However, GNOME Classic will not let me customize the panels. I've done Alt-RClick, Super-RClick, ... but the menu that adds/removes applets does not come up.
What is the general way to switch the keyboard layout? What works for me currently is the custom Section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/kbd.conf. However this section must include Option "Device" "/dev/input/by-path/..." which identifies the current keyboard. This works fine for my laptop keyboard. However when I attach USB keyboard, keyboard switching does not work. I also found somewhere it should be done via /etc/default/keyboard, but that does not work for me at all.
I'd like to change around my keyboard layout a bit and can't figure out how. I'd really like to swap f1 and f7, f11 and f2, right alt and escape, backspace and caps lock, and a few of the letter keys. Is there any easy way to do this? (It's a confusing story about why I want to swap the f keys) Gnome, if it matters.
I use Puppy Linux 5.1.1. My keyboard layout is US but I want it to be UK (GB). I have used the mouse/keyboard wizard (Choose keyboard layout for your country) in Setup and made all the right choices but nothing changes. In the 'Advanced Xorg keyboard configuration', when I choose 'layouts', I am told 'Your xorg.config file does not contain any Xkb layout options'. What else can I do?
I have Debian running in Russian and English. The Russian keyboard layout isn't the typewriter standard, which I know and much prefer to the one it gives me.
NOTE: I am NOT using KDE or gnome. (ratpoison is my windows manager.) I need to solve this via CLI-based solution, I want it to affect the keyboard I get both in ratpoison and in a basic CLI tty (when I'm not in X).
I'm rly poundering on the following problem. For our school assignment we need to make a liveCD (just a part of the assignment). I've stripped down a default ubuntu 9.10 . But I need to default keyboard layout to be azerty (belgium). When I run the liveCD in virtualbox and do dpkg -reconfigure console-setup it's all good.
But when I do it in chroot to change the liveCD, it gives an OK etc but when I pack it into an ISO again and run it ... Again US keyboard layout. Even on startup when I change the keymap it doesn't change to azerty... I rly don't know what to try now..
This was a fresh install of 10.04. I set the keyboard for UK Intl for use with a cordless keyboard. The keyboard turns out to be incompatible with 10.04, because it does not type the ' and " signs correctly. I tried another cordless keyboard with the same result. I gave up and attached a plug in usb keyboard which has a USA layout. I added USA International layout and set to apply system wide.
The problem is that whenever the computer is shut down and restarted it reverts to the UK setting, and even though I'm using a USA keyboard it still does not type the ' and " signs correctly. Can I fix this without doing a full re-install?
I have Ubuntu Natty installed and I'm using German keyboard layout. If I try to change using CTRL-ALT-F1 into terminal then I have US keyboard instead of German. Howto change keyboard layout in the Terminal?
At first, I've installed the desktop version (Gnome desktop environment) with a German keyboard (u know, "y" and "z" is swapped, etc...) and everything turned out to be fine.
The problem comes when I want to use a normal en-US layout keyboard to replace the German keyboard.
I simply did: System Settings --> Hardware --> Keyboard and in the "Layouts" page I "Remove" the German layout and "Add" the USA layout. I even clicked the "Apply System-Wide..." button...
Things work out fine for the current session.
But each time after a restart/log out the default layout will go back to German although the USA layout still exists in the "Layouts" page. And also in the console I can tell the layout is still German.
I've installed fedora10 on my virtual machine under a OpenSuse10.3. When installing i ve chosen English language and French layout for keyboard. But any time i run fedora my kb is English and i cannot find how to change it How can i do it using shell?

If I start my Lenny with Gnome I get the login window. The strange problem is, I have us keyboard there, but after login I have german keyboard. Under System -> Preferences -> Keyboard I have only german keyboard layout setuped. Howto change keyboard layout at the login window?
I am wondering how you can change the view of the classic GNOME menu (Applications | Places | System) in 11.3 to the "classic" view (like in Fedora)? The Applications menu has to much sub-menus. I prefer it flat. The nautilus bookmarks are not directly accessible in Places either, which is not really comfortable.
I have openSUSE 11.2 with default GNOME desktop and i'm facing issues with keyboard layouts, which are changing randomly. Problem is that i have GNOME in Slovak language and therefore has openSUSE set durring installation my keyboard layout to 'Slovak' but i always change it to 'Slovak QWERTY' which suits me better. Problem is that randomly system adds back to my layouts which are 'Slovak QWERTY' and 'USA' also original 'Slovak' layout which was previously removed.
I must always manually remove this third layout and it's very frustrating. Many times on fresh system boot it's anyway back and so on and on... Where may lie the problem? Why is GNOME not respecting my settings? In Ubuntu i never have these basic issues. Are there on system boot some specific SUSE triggers which are overwriting my configuration?
