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.

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

Jan 10, 2010

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.

I'd like to make it so when I type the key to the left of 1 (the one that types out ` and ~) that it types R.

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 . But I need to default keyboard layout to be azerty (belgium). When I run the liveCD in virtualbox and do dpkg -reconfigure console-setup it's all good.

But when I do it in chroot to change the liveCD, it gives an OK etc but when I pack it into an ISO again and run it ... Again US keyboard layout. Even on startup when I change the keymap it doesn't change to azerty... I rly don't know what to try now..

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.

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).

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 :: 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.

Ubuntu :: How To Use Dvorak Keyboard Layout In 10.04

Jul 24, 2010

I recently decided to try out the Dvorak layout, and manually rearranged my keys today. For those who do not know:
Dvorak is a keyboard layout designed in the 1930's that is designed for comfort and speed. It is reported as being easier to learn than Qwerty, and more comfortable as well. Keep in mind that you can still type in Qwerty after you manually change your keyboard to Dvorak.

First, for those who want a Dvorak keyboard, you don't! You can rearrange the keys on your existing keyboard like I did. To do so, insert the dull end of a fingernail clipper (or other long, thing object) into the area between two keys on your keyboard. Be sure to unplug your keyboard first, or you might end up typing ksiwmvosioiwjefoakjsdfj;ls.xoqw, or worse, triggering a system shortcut.

Be sure to look at a picture of the current Dvorak layout first. Once you have removed the necessary keys, line up the male end of a key with the female end of the location it needs to be. Press down hard! You tap the key in its new location a few times before you proceed. Some of the keys on my keyboard were different. On my keyboard, the F and J keys and their slots were different than the rest of the keyboard. These keys sunk when pressed. To avoid this, I put these keys in upside down, as you can see in the first example.

Once you have placed all of the keys, plug your keyboard back in. Type something. You'll notice that everything is completely normal, except your keyboard looks like the something from Carmen Sandiego: Word Detective. In order to type in Dvorak, you will need to add the Dvorak keyboard layout. Doing so is simple. Go to System>Preferences>Keyboard. Go to the layout tab, and click "Add...".

If you are limited on screen space, or don't want to spend a century scrolling down to the bottom of the list, go to the "By language" tab, select English as the Language, and select USA Dvorak as the layout. If you want, you can disable "Separate layout for each window". Now, click on USA Dvorak and click "Options...". You will want to change Alt/Win behavior to "Meta is mapped to Win keys". Also disable anything under "Key(s) to change layout".

Now, click on "USA" in the notification area and notice that it says "USA2". You should now be able to type in Dvorak. Try typing something! Be amazed at how slow you are. Next, try out a keyboard shortcut. If you have Compiz, some of your shortcuts might not work. For those shortcuts that don't apply to Compiz, try rebinding them in Keyboard Shortcuts. To fix Compiz using Qwerty for shortcuts, press alt F2 and run this command:

Code:
compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints
Also, you should change the layout on your login screen next time you login. Don't want to type ekrpat, now do we? Unfortunately, after finishing righting this, I discovered Colemak...
