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.

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.

Ubuntu :: US-International Keyboard Layout All Wrong And Difficult To Use

Apr 10, 2010

The US-International layout in K/Ubuntu seems to be extremely irritating and difficult to use. I'm wondering if I could find some help here. One thing is if a dead key doesn't work (typing in ' + t for example) it will produce nothing in Ubuntu, as opposed to windows producing 't. I must add a space after almost every apostrophe or quotation mark, which is becoming extremely difficult, tedious, irritating and unnecessary. Also the dead keys that are available are ridiculous. The dead keys I am used to and want are:

' + [letter] = ����� � �
" + [letter] = ����� �
` + [letter] = ���� �
~ + [letter] = � � �
^ + [letter] = ���� �

Which allows one to simultaneously and smoothly type English, Dutch and German but could (to a lesser extent) be used for French. What I get:

[Code]...

Which makes 's (ś) painful, as well as the many uses for apostrophes in dutch like m'n and 'k (producing mń and ḱ respectively) etc. Considering this layout is widely used and is pretty much the de facto layout in The Netherlands whose primary languages would be Dutch and English (and some German), why has it become so difficult to use? Also, how do I fix it?

OpenSUSE Install :: Update: No Home, Wrong Keyboard Layout, OpenOffice?

Dec 3, 2009

I updated from 11.1 to 11.2. Before some intelligent person says, I should never update but do a new install: a new install isn't better, then I have other problems to tackle. And I really would like updates to work.Well, I have the following problems and I hope you don't mind me listing them all in one post *it's difficult for me to type on this keyboard layout):1. home isn't found or set up. I have modified fstab to mount /dev/sda6, which is home, but it won't mount it at startup, and also not when it's just using the disk/by-id line that had been put in.

2. the keyboard layout is american, while the system language is set to German (I'm German and would like also my keyboard to know that). I had no chance to change that, even a loadkeys de-latin1 doesn't help3. OpenOffice drives me crazy. It just doesn't start properly, or at all. It doesn't open a number of documents, but it doesn't also give any error message. Sometimes soffice.bin is in the list of processes, but OOo is nowhere seen. After killing the process (or terminating it), I can start it, but have only the opening screen and cannot really open a document.4. printing doesn't seem to work, either.Needless to say that everything worked fine before the update

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.

Fedora :: Fc11 NX Keyboard Layout Broken - Unresponsive

* 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?

OpenSUSE :: Epson SX600FW Landscape Layout Wrong?

Feb 6, 2010

Having selected 'Landscape', when printing using 'File|Print' in KWrite, the text is presented in landscape but formatted to a size of approximately 105mm x 590mm (bottom half of a landscape page and stretched to twice the width, printing only the left hand side). I have a similar issue with some other programs too, but not Open Office.Having configured 'cupsd.conf' to log in debug mode it would seem that the problem I'm getting may be to do with applications that output in 'application/pdf' format, because in the CUPS log for Job 57 line 479 seems to indicate that KWrite has output a PDF file:

Code:[Job 57] File of type application/pdf queued by "root". Then at line 490 there's a line that seems to indicate no landscape, even though this was selected through the user interface of KWrite (and works in Open Office)!:Code:[Job 57] argv[5]="document-name=4b69b8710002c media=A4 nolandscape job-uuid=urn:uuid:5c6fae2f-ad2f-3364-5f04-bb5500d1eabc" I would have attached the various 'log' and 'conf' files but I'm new to this and I just can't find a way to get attachments enabled for my login!I've spent hours on this, if anyone can give me any pointers I would be most grateful, however I am no Linux system administrator I'm afraid.Current system: openSUSE 11.2 x64, Kernel 2.6.31.8, CUPS 1.3.11, gutenprint 5.2.4, KWrite 4.3.1 release 6, KDE 4.3.1.1Old system (that worked with this printer): openSUSE 11.1 x32, gutenprint 5.2.2

Fedora :: GDM Login On Wrong Monitor?

Jan 29, 2010

I have 2 monitor on and Nvidia FX5200 set up as twinview

Monitor 1 is an old Sony CRT @ 1280x1024
Monitor 2 is a Visio HDTV @1920x1080

I have setup Monitor 1 to be the primary using nvidia-settings but the GDM login keeps sowing up in the second monitor ; before the HDTV I had a CRT TV @ 1024x768 and all was good. My theory is that GDM determines the center of the Screen (both monitors together) and then centers on that monitor. If this is true then how may I override this behavior and force the GDM login to show on my primary monitor?
