Debian Configuration :: Keyboard Layout Used At Boot For Encrypted Filesystem?

Jun 28, 2011

how can I set the keyboard layout used by Debian to enter the password of my encrypted filesystem?

After my recent "aptitude upgrade", I have not been able to mount my encrypted filesystem anymore. I have discovered that the keyboard layout used to enter the password has changed. Problem is that with such layout I can't enter some of the characters composing the password. The encrypted filesystem looks intact, since I have been able to mount it and backup my files by means of a live CD. That means that I can edit any system file, if needed.

Every technique I have found to change layout cannot be employed in this case, since they rely on the system being up and running. I've tried editing /etc/default/keyboard, but that does not work.

Debian Configuration :: Changing Keyboard Layout On Console?

Apr 9, 2010

I know there are many threads regarding this topic.I probably read most of them. At installation time I told Debian to use German keyboard layout (since I am from Germany). Now I want to switch it to American keyboard layout. In X this was no problem. But in the tty consoles I cant get it changed. It does not matter to me if it is system wide or user wide because I am the only user. (system wide would be a little bit more preferrable because it would affect the super user too, I think).I tried dpkg-reconfigure console-data
and selecting my desired layout. This changes the Layout to American until reboot

Debian Configuration :: Create An Encrypted File And Later Mount It As A Filesystem?

Aug 24, 2010

I am trying to create an encrypted file and later mount it as a filesystem.

KEY=`tr -cd [:graph:] < /dev/urandom | head -c 79`
echo $KEY | openssl aes-256-cbc > container.key
dd if=/dev/urandom of=~/container.img bs=1G count=10
losetup /dev/loop0 ~/container.img

[code]....

The luksOpen command asks me for my passphrase, but always rejects it. I have retried this several times and written down the passphrase - and even tried with a very simple one just to check. And I never can make it work.

Debian Configuration :: Boot Hangs With 4.2.6 Static Kernel And Encrypted LVM

Dec 7, 2015

I use a static compiled kernel and a fully encrypted disk apart from a boot partition. I have recompiled and installed kernels many times. When I tried with the latest kernel from Testing, 4.2.6, the system will not boot. Not only that but the previous kernel now does not boot. However, a stock modular kernel does boot. The static kernel hangs at:

Code: Select allVolume group "dk" not found
Cannot process volume group dk
/run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: connect failed: No such file or directory
WARNING: Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to internal scanning.
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
/run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: connect failed: No such file or directory

[Code] ....

And after giving the password the boot continues successfully. How to diagnose it further?

Debian Configuration :: System Does Filesystem Check On Every Boot After Upgrade

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard Layout Constantly Resets To Another Layout In OSUSE 11.3?

Aug 9, 2010

I have installed opensuse 11.3 a couple of weeks ago in 2 computers and both suffer of the same problem.In my asus laptop, i have a german keyboard. It is correctly recogniced as german keyboard by ev-dev, i guess. (ev-dev managed). But i need to write some spanisch symbols too, like accents (Š†© Ū†≥ ? ٨†∑hich in a normal linux, they do work. For some reason, after rebooting, or after some time of having it running, the keyboard layout resets to an invalid setup, here accents get not over the letter (?a ?e ?i ?o ?u), so i have to select my layout again in the gnome control center.

With my other computermore or less the same.Its a desktop PC with an spanisch keyboard. But i thinck i picked German keyboard during installation and now it starts always with german with some sort of 5 secs delay when setting it. I have to pick spanisch and i always delete the german layout, but after some time having it running, it resets to the previusly deleted german layout.

Debian Configuration :: Keyboard And Mouse Not Reacting After Boot?

Jan 22, 2011

A couple of weeks ago I installed a new 4-core Lenovo PC and installed Squeeze on it - keeping it updated every day. When kdm or gnome display the login screen, my USB-connected keyboard and mouse don't react. When I then unplug and re-attach them into the same socket everything ist fine. Surely this can't be working as intended? I can however get into BIOS-Setup as usual during the initial boot-phase by pressing Crtl-S and F1. Things also are fine when selecting the debian version to run from the multi-boot screen.

I am enclosing the kern.log of the last boot below (don't know how to attach files!). In that I can see that on line 530 ist says New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=c03e (address: 5; optical Logitech mouse) and then on line 542 New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=c31c (address: 6; keyboard).
It seems to get "interesting again on line 632 etc. with the message usb 2-1.8: USB disconnect, address 6.

Debian :: Can't Scroll Up/down In Debian Installer (even After Changed Keyboard Layout)

Dec 1, 2010

when I finally wanted to install Debian to my hardrive. Somehow, how to copy it to USB drive and make it boot-able. Installation process started without problems, but it failed on step called (something like) "Find files in CD-ROM" - what was expectable, since I used USB drive. So I wanted to unmount "/cdrom" and mount my USB drive there instead. I moved to another terminal, and searched for right device. "ls /dev" does not help, since I can't scroll to see other devices. Also kernel messages - can't scroll. Tried to change keyboard layout, still didn't work. I also can't use less, because there is no apt-get installed. Another problem is, that after trying to mount only viewable device (/dev/sda1), mount failed bacause I gave there invalid argument, or directory didn't exist. (Note that I created directory in /mnt/... or /media/... first). So I am asking - how can I remap keyboard to use those page up/down keys?

Debian :: Password Keyboard Layout In Chroot

Sep 18, 2015

I tried to install Debian on my MyBook Live NAS following this [URL] ..... I was as happy as a sandboy when the SSH login finally was reachable after the process which went through without any errors or problems. But thats not the end - my password is not accepted and so i can't login.

In more technical terms here's my question: I chrooted into a newly debootstrapped system and changed the password using simple 'passwd'. Having done that on another machine i could find out that there are no locales/keyboard settings applied. My guess is that in this case the default US(?) settings and the keyboard layout are used.

Not aware of any issue here i entered a password containing special characters like " and ! and @. After investigating further I found out that in the chroot environment my keyboard layout from the host is used, which is bad because i do not know what environment was set in the originally MyBook system. All the action was done via SSH using kitty.

Disassembly would be the last exit which i would like to avoid. What keyboard layouts are used in chroot without locales set AND which one is used in the openssh login prompt? Is there a way to enter the password in a <ALT> + x format?

Debian Installation :: Custom Keyboard Layout On Jessie

May 23, 2015

I was using a custom layout for my keyboard as I've a UK laptop but still use french accents sometimes. After the update from Wheezy to Jessie my configs disappeared so I have put them back:

- Defining my layout here: /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/gb
- Adding here: /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.xml and here /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.xml in the gb configItem

Code: Select all       <variant>
          <configItem>
            <name>accentsFR</name>
            <description>English (UK with french accents)</description>
          </configItem>
        </variant>

- Adding the declaration of the layout here /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.lst and here /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.lst

Code: Select all  accentsFR       gb: English (UK with french accents)

So everything looks alright, if I go to System Tools -> Preferences -> Settings -> Keyboard -> Input Source my layout is well selected and I can even see the correct layout by clicking on the keyboard icon (cf my snapshot)

Here is the snapshot of the keyboard input source settings: [URL]....

Debian Multimedia :: General Way To Switch Keyboard Layout?

Nov 22, 2010

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.

Debian :: Unreadable Characters In Console Mode And In Keyboard Layout?

Oct 10, 2010

I'm getting a weird charset problem in a chroot'ed system that I kexec'ed into. It is especially noticeable in ncurses programs like aptitude, but it also noticeable in vim. [URL] My locales are configured to en_US.UTF-8, I have choosen my keyboard layout with kbd-config while in the chroot before kexec'ing into it, I've passed the bootkbd= parameter to the kexec'ed kernel, and my TERM variable is set to "linux". I can't try xterm because this chroot system doesn't has X.

EDIT: I just noticed that the keyboard layout I selected is not working properly. All keys work fine except the ones that are specific to my country. Instead of ç I get a weird symbol.

Debian :: Keyboard Layout Switches Accidentaly In Gnome - Lenny

Jan 4, 2010

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 "ńćesko 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.

The whole thread is here: [url]

Debian Configuration :: DNS And Resizing Encrypted Partition

Feb 27, 2016

I have Debian and Virtual Box with another Debian. I have resized max size of vdi file with VBoxManage modifyhd but now I need to resize partition on virtual machine's system. I've downloaded GParted and I can run machine from this ISO as CD. Partition is encrypted on machine.Unfortunately GParted doesn't start with X so I have to use it in terminal. I can see partitions:

Code: Select allroot@debian:/# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 80 GiB, 85899345920 bytes, 167772610 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x3914....

[code]....

So I though maybe I need to use this (URL...). I couldn't find similar tutorial about Debian or GParted but OK, it's just executing these commands, not modifying its source.list.But I cannot even do the update:

Code: Select allroot@debian:/# sudo apt-get update
Err: http://free.nchc.org.tw/debian sid InRelease
  Temporary failure resolving 'free.nchc.org.tw'
Err2: http://free.nchc.org.tw/drbl-core drbl InRelease
  Temporary failure resolving 'free.nchc.org.tw'
Reading package lists... Done
W: Failed to fetch http://free.nchc.org.tw/debian/dists/sid/InRelease  Teporary failure resolving 'free.nchc.org.tw'
W: Failed to fetch http://free.nchc.org.tw/drbl-core/dists/drbl/InRelease  Temporary failure resolving 'free.nchc.org.tw'
W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

So I check my internet connection. VirtualBox has 'attached to NAT' and before I run out of space on virtual machine, Debian could access internet. So it's only something about this GParted. I have modified /etc/resolv.conf with vi (even vim is not available). And it has two valid nameservers. I haven't restarted anything, as I'm not sure if I need to, after modifying resolv.conf file.But even in that case I cannot ping anything from GParted:

Code: Select allroot@debian:/# ping www.google.com
ping: unknown host www.google.com

How can I access internet from GParted and resize encrypted partition?
