Ubuntu :: Adding Spanish Language Keyboard Layout Disables Alt_R On USA Layout?

May 29, 2010

Running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, GNOME 2.3Keyboard Preferences utilityAdding any Spanish language keyboard layout makes my Alt_R not work in ANY layout! I see that it changes Alt_R to "Iso_L..." for all/both layouts, including USA layout. When I click "Reset to Defaults" it's fine again, USA layout shows Alt_R again. I've tried all the variants of the Latin American layout and the Spain layout and they all do the same thing.What is "ISO_L..." and what's going on?i DESPERATELY need my Alt_R to work!

OpenSUSE :: Keyboard Randomly Changes Language And Layout?

Feb 23, 2010

I installed open suse 11.2 yesterday stock Education edition DVD.

I changed the keyboard because it was generating garbage instead of english chars. (everything was stock from the CD)

The replacement kb is a newer one (I favor the old kb's).

eventually the language and layout of the keyboard changes - usually to Arabic or some Eastern alphabet.

I was really starting to like open suse, but if this persists it is unusable.

Something is misbehaving - any Ideas would be appreciated.

I'm running the default desktop env - gnome.

OpenSUSE :: Keyboard Layout Changing Randomly - GNOME In Slovak Language

Jan 30, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Can't Switch Keyboard Layout?

May 9, 2011

I made the mistake to install Ubuntu 11.04 without trying it first from a live usb. After 15 minutes switched to classic theme (Unity seems to netbook oriented and confusing to me). After 2 days I am about to go back to my beloved Ubuntu 10.10.

I added some keyboard layouts and also specified alt+shift as the command to switch between layouts. Unfortunately it is not working!

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Keyboard Layout Switch Automatic?

Jan 8, 2011

I have ubuntu 10.10 (System is up to date with updates)kernel 2.6.35-24 gnome 2.32.0 with two keyboard layouts US and German, US is on the top of the list.

System itself is installed as English. Although location is Austria.

Whenever i open a window not already opened in the session, like a chatwindow in skype, the keyboard layout is switching to german. I can change it back to US and it stays as long as i open no new window.

For Skype and chats it seems like having already opened a window to this contact is enough for the next opening of window to the same contact.

For me it looks a little bit like the settings are use different keyboard layout for each window and use default layout (how ever this got to be german).

So far i checked the keyboard layouts to have disabled all shortcuts changing the layout, checked that the seperate layout option is disabled and applied it system wide

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.

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 (ᠩ ? 񬠷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.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Language Standardized In Wrong Language

Nov 28, 2010

While installing Ubuntu 10.10 I chose the wrong language for my keyboard. I tried to fix this in keyboard preferences and it seemed to work. The correct one I need is USA (and don't know exactly the difference between USA and USA alternative international). But every time I boot my laptop I get the old language back (Dutch) while USA is above the others in my preferences.

Fedora :: Use More Than 1 Language In The Keyboard?

i am trying to use greek as well, besides english, but my keyboard doesn't want to. i have visited the directory /usr/share/x11/xkb/symbols, where i can see that there is a file called gr, which most likely is for greek, but i don't know what to do with it.

Fedora :: Make A Personalized Keyboard Layout ?

Jul 24, 2009

My problem is that I use a awful lot of characters. I do math which means I want to be able to type Greek letters and mathematical symbols, and I also want to be able to type Polish and Russian characters. I figure for Cyrillic I should just make a separate layout since I wouldn't want to type with one hand on some special key all the time anyway. What I would like to do would be to use the right alt for Polish and math symbols (there are enough keys to go around) and use a different shortcut for Greek letters, preferably not involving switching layouts.

I know only a very small bit about how xkb works (I at least know where the layout files are, what each key is called, and how to do trivial manipulations, but that's it) and none of the tutorials i could find were very informative about what I need to know.

One stupid, hopefully easy problem is that I do not know how to input math characters because I do not know their names (for characters like integral, less than or equal to, direct sum, etc) or if/how I can put in Unicode ids or something of that nature.

The other thing is that I don't know how to set up a separate key combination (say right-alt - backslash) to use Greek letters.

Fedora :: Keyboard Layout Back To USA After Login

Dec 12, 2009

This problem has been discussed a couple of times here and there and there are numerous solutions as well as unsolved stories. The topic says it all I think. I use ca(fr) layout, and in the gnome keyboard configuration (system, preferences, keyboard) I only leave Canada. When I log out and go back in, the layout changes to USA and in the configuration tool, theres canada AND usa. I have to delete USA every time. The file /etc/sysconfig/keyboard is already set to ca(fr) and doesn't change

I tried to delete:
rm -f /var/cache/gdm/your-username/.dmrc
rm -f ~/.dmrc

but I either did miss something or it didn't work. The only thing I observed is that if I set the keyboard layout to Ca(fr) at the login screen (which is always set back to USA), the layout stays to ca(fr) in my session. This problem did not occur on Fedora 11 and it began on 12 on my laptop as well as on my girlfriend's.

I've read somewhere and I forgot where, that it is a known bug in Gnome and that it is fixed in a later version. I applied all available updates and system/about this computer says I have Gnome 2.28.0 and if I recall, this bug is supposedly fixed in 2.28.4 but I may be wrong on the version number. This is very annoying as we try to turn our computers off when we don't use them but this reset every login kind of forces us to our previous bad habits.

Fedora :: Fc11 NX Keyboard Layout Broken - Unresponsive

Jan 29, 2010

* When connecting to a host using NX (nomachine), the keyboard layout is wrong, Down arrow is enter, delete is print screen making it difficult to work.

* Gnome keyboard interface appears to do nothing when options are changed, works in fc10.

* Trying to changed the keyboard options originally crashed the nx connection, untill I murdered bug buddy who was the culprit in that issue.

In fc10 you could change options and see a result, not so in fc11, why ?

Fedora :: Incorrect Keyboard Layout ( No Pipe Character )?

Feb 11, 2010

I'm new to linux, been using fedora 12 for about a week. I just noticed a problem with my keyboard layout. When i press the key with the backslash and pipe character, i get < for backslash and > for the pipe character. I have tried the following to fix the problem:

1.$ gnome-keyboard-properties then selected the proper keyboard model (Asus Laptop) tried adding different keyboard layouts and setting them as default nothing i did there made any difference.I am currently using USA, i have tried Canada English, USA international, and more I noticed that even when i change it to something like Afganistan, there is no noticable different when i type in the test area. I notice that there are keyboard layouts that have < and > where the backslash and pipe character should be, but the picture for USA shows the pipe and backslash where they should be.

Fedora Installation :: Notebook HP Pavilion DV8000 - Keyboard Layout?

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Language To Stick / Solve This?

Dec 12, 2010

I'm using Maverick at my house. While our system is based in English, we need Spanish quite often. Well, Right now, I've got some issues on it:
1. Some of my menu items are in English, others in Spanish.
2. In my home directory I've got a folder called "Desktop" (with a folder icon) and another called "Escritorio"--desktop in Spanish (and it uses the desktop icon).
3. When I log in none of the content in my Desktop directory is visible on the desktop.
I'm pretty sure the problems are related to my locale issue.

When I type locale the output is code...

I"ve tried to change the language by editing /etc/default/locale and /etc/environment to use LANGUAGE="en_US:en". I then entered the command export LANGUAGE=en_US:en and upon typing the command 'locale', it would show LANGUAGE=en_US:en, however upon restart it would be back to the original LANGUAGE=en_US:es_GT:en and the above mentioned problems.
