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 :: Wrong Keyboard Layout At Login (KDM)

Aug 16, 2010

I use a Dvorak keyboard. I recently installed F13, and the layout is correct in the console an after logging in, but at the login screen, it goes to QWERTY. I've tried all of the settings in the GUI configurators; all of those are set right. There is no xorg.conf; so, I can't change it that way.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Keep Reverting Back To US Layout

Apr 2, 2010

I've got an UK keyboard, and every time I boot up, Ubuntu keep reverting back to the US keyboard layout which is annoying me. I open up keyboard preferences, the UK layout is already selected. So I delete the US layout, click on "Apply System-wide" and it works. Until I reboot and the US layout is back in there! I suspect it's something to do with not having admin privileges to permanently save the changes - if this is the case, why it doesn't ask me for my password, or give me a chance to escalate my privileges or something?

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Layout Changes At Logout / Login

Jun 14, 2010

Running Ubuntu 10.04 AMD64 and Compiz with cube enabled. I have a BTC 5100 PS/2 mini keyboard, and if keyboard layout is set to USA it works fine. Keyboard model is set to "Generic 105-key (Intl) PC" and I don't see an entry for BTC 5100.

But every time I logout or reboot, the system adds an entry for "USA International (with dead keys)" below the entry for "USA" in the keyboard layouts tab and then I lose keys like the apostrophe key. I have no idea where these setting are kept. I've checked .gconf/desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd/%gconf.xml, but see no change when I blow the second keyboard layout away.

General :: Keyboard Layout Changed - Screen Locked Now Cannot Login

Aug 8, 2010

While I was away from my computer a friend changed my keyboard layout to a random layout thinking he could revert it via mouse actions only. Unfortunately, by the time I returned, my screen was locked. Now I cannot unlock my session to get back in to the KDE session to restore the correct keyboard layout.

However, I can log in to a console. In the console (e.g., Ctrl-Alt-F1), the keyboard layout is unchanged, so I can edit any text files and make any other changes required. How can I change the KDE keyboard layout from a console? I'm running Kubuntu 10.04. There is no .kderc file in my home directory. And Xorg.conf doesn't contain the settings either. I'm not sure where else to look.

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.

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.

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?

Fedora :: Lose "gb" Layout Keyboard When Using X?

Ubuntu :: How To Set The Keyboard Layout

Jun 6, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 11.04.

how to set the keyboard layout.

I keep using the rescue cd because whenever I choose a keyboard layout the system does not seem to keep it like that.

After rebooting it loads another layout and I can't find which keys to type in that unknown layout. So for the moment, my password is 'tt' because I know it will work in both layout.

I have a belgium azerty keyboard. For the moment the upper option in the keyboard layout screen is USA and the lower option is Belgium. Which is weird since I thought that the upper option was of higher priority. But at least it works like that. At least until I reboot I think

PS: the rescue cd has also a keyboard layout problem. I chose belgium and I end up with a usa layout.
