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.

Ubuntu :: Creating A Custom Keyboard Layout

Jan 22, 2010

There have been some posts on this forum about custom keyboard layouts, but the latest one was more than three years ago, and is outdated. I found the following code for a custom dvorak international keyboard layout here, but it directs me to copy this code into the folder /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/pc, a folder which does not seem to exist in 9.10 or 9.04.

Code:

As this is the only thing I felt Windows did better than Ubuntu (custom keyboard layouts), I would love to be able to change the layout and finally seal the deal with Ubuntu.

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]....

OpenSUSE :: Custom Keyboard Layout Asciitilde Does Not Work

Jul 23, 2011

I have swapped backspace key with ` (grave) key. So I added a layout in the /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/us with the following lines:

key <TLDE> { [ BackSpace, BackSpace, BackSpace, BackSpace ] };
key <BKSP> { [ grave, asciitilde, dead_tilde, asciitilde ] };

Now the backspace and grave work well, but when I press shift + grave (previously backspace key), I get grave, not asciitilde.

This is strange because I tried the same thing (with the same us file) with Chakra linux and it worked without any problem.

General :: Adding A Custom Keyboard Layout In Kubuntu?

Feb 28, 2011

I have written a custom keyboard layout that I'm trying to install in Kubuntu 10.10. This is the layout: [URL]

I have added the layout as /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/dotan and made these changes:

In /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.lst I added this:
! layout
dotan Dotan
Of course, the !layout line was already there, I did not touch it.
In /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.xml I added this:
<layoutList>
<layout>

[Code]....

However, after a reboot I do not see the new layout in KDE's configuration for these things.

Note: this is a repost of a post on the geekhack forums. After posting I realised that LinuxQuestions is the better place to ask this. For reference, here is the original geekhack thread: [URL]

Ubuntu :: Command For Inserting Symbols? OR Custom Keyboard Layout

Feb 24, 2010

Is there a way to set up a custom keyboard layout? (ex: set q to the f key, etc.) I have looked around, but have been unable to find one.

If there isn't one, then a (basically) equivalent solution for me would be to map some of the symbols I need (ex: Δx,Σ,ect.) to ctrl-/,ctrl-., ect. through keyboard shortcuts. The problem I run into here is that I do not know of any commands that paste a specific symbol into the focused text input area. Does anyone know of one?

Ubuntu :: Change Around My Keyboard Layout A Bit?

Apr 19, 2010

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.

General :: Change Keyboard Layout From US To UK (GB)?

May 13, 2011

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?

General :: How To Change The Keyboard Layout

May 2, 2010

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).

Ubuntu :: Change Keyboard Layout When One Key Isn't Working?

My R key isn't working anymore. I use Karmic Koala.

The keyboard preferences is set up for different languages, but that's not my problem.

Ubuntu :: Change Keyboard Layout 9.10 Chroot

Mar 12, 2010

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 .

Ubuntu :: Change Default Keyboard Layout

Jun 21, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Change - Default - Keyboard Layout In 11.04?

Jul 23, 2011

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.

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.
