I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.24 at a computer running Windows 7. Here are 2 scenearios, with the same result:
If I boot from the Ubuntu CD and try to install it, the wizard is freezed at the keyboard layout selection. I'm able to select my keyboard, but after I press Forward, the button is greyed out and nothing happens.
If I press cancel, I load the Live CD and retry the installation from there, selecting the shortcut "Install Ubuntu 10,04 LTS" from the desktop. Everything goes fine until the keyboard layout selection. Just in case, my keyboard is a USB Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and it works perfectly fine in Windows 7 and in the Live CD.
The thing is that whenever I try to install Ubuntu (Xubuntu actually, but the problem seems to happen with any desktop environment) I fill the spaces, choose the partition where to install, set the mount points and everything, but when I get to choose the keyboard layout the installation freezes, it just stays there and it won't give me the chance to submit a username and a password for my Linux session.
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.
I have acer aspire one netbook i'm using ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop but i wan't to install ubuntu on the netbook. i made usb installer ubuntu will run from the usb drive but when i try to install it gets stuck on step 3 of 7. wth? tried over and over again
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!
I have an AMD Athlon 3200+ 64 and I want to install a dual boot Win7/Xubuntu system. When I try to install Xubuntu 64 bit, but the also the 32 bit version and both Kubuntu versions, the installation stops after the keyboard layout screen. The install completely hangs (no cd or other noticeable activity on the computer) and I have to do a hard reboot to get out of it. I've been looking for a solution and found that the options noapic and/or nolapic in the installer F6 menu might solve this problem,unfortunately they didn't work for me. I've done the CD integrety and memory checks, but no errors were found. I'm pretty lost from here.
I also read installing from the alternative CD might work, but I'm not sure what to expect from this textual installation. If it's only a command-line installer I don't think I will be able to do much with it as I haven't yet been able to find a tutorial on how to use it. Does anyone konw where I can find instructions?
I was wondering if anyone could provide resources on creating and installing keyboard layouts from scratch. I am a conlanger(I create languages), and I need to be able to map certain unicode characters to certain keys. I could do this via creating a font, however, It would be easier if I could just switch between layouts which is easier than switching between fonts. Especially, when I am using more than one program at once. I'm sorry because I have never used the Ubuntu forums before and I probably posted this in the wrong forum.
I'd like to install Fedora 14 64bit as a dual boot on an existing win 7 32bit system. When I boot with the Live CD, after selecting "boot" in the Fedora boot selection menu, I get a grey screen with a white cursor, and the system freezes. I checked the Live CD on my laptop and it worked perfectly.

I have a UK keyboard, so I selected the United Kingdom layout on installation of OpenSUSE 11.3.However, something keeps automatically adding the USA layout, and switching to it ! How can I prevent this annoying and intrusive behaviour ? Deleting the USA layout is not enough, it seems. It just restores it again.
I have tried to install Ubuntu Lucid Lynx on my Aspire One netbook. I tried both the full version and the netbook remix and both installations stall at the keyboard layout stage. I select the layout and click forward but it stalls and doesn't go any further. Anyone else have this problem on any of their machines or do you think it could just be specific to the Aspire One? I just find it odd that it happened on both versions. They work fine in live mode so I don't know what could be causing this.
- 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]....
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
I have a keyboard layout built in Korean language, and when i installed openSUSE 11.3 by network installation i keep keyboard layout to Korean. But after installation can't write Korean but still see Korean font in Firefox, cuz i added its font on firefox configuration settings. What shall i do? I want installed in English but still need to use Korean fonts to write something.
i've just built my own debian distro with simple-cdd, based on the latest release of lenny. everything is working fine, except for:
first, i couldn't set a default keyboard layout up in preseed file. i tried all these settings below, but none of them worked: console-data console-data/keymap/qwerty/layout select US american console-data console-data/keymap/family select qwerty console-common console-data/keymap/family select qwerty
I used to have F9 on my HP pavilion dv8000. I have been trying to install F10 (and even CentOS 5.3) on it and, during the installation process, when I choose the keyboard layout (english) it doesn't go on. Weird because I am using the same disk I successfully used to install F10 on my desktop. What could it be? The same problem happens when I make the installation process in text mode...
I have problems with keyboard layout switcher. On Gnome everything works. But when I start to use other DE I can't switch keyboard layout by default. So I create xorg.conf, but anyway it doesn't work...
I'm a used Ubuntu user on a pc, and I like the french keyboard layout because it allows me to type accentued characters easily.I found a win-fr keyboard layout but it's much like windows and not so good.I found xmodmap.fr keyboard layout and I'd like to know if it was possible use it with my Mac SL 10.6.5, maybe I could do xmodmap xmodmap.fr or a way to convert to mac layout file.
Recently i have bought a Dell Inspiron n5010 laptop and installed ubuntu 10.10. I have a windows 7 installed as well. In windows Us English Table for IBM Arabic 238_L keyboard layout works for my pc. But, i can not find this layout in my ubuntu.
Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit, GNOME desktop. Previous install (same OS) gave an error when switching users. Did a fresh install, and now the keyboard and mouse freeze. This happens almost every session. I have to force shutdown. Sometimes it happens in 5 minutes, other times it happens in 4 hours. I don't want to sound like a jerk, but the Ubuntu problems are starting to get to me. I really want to use this. I like it, but I'm getting frustrated. 9.10 had wireless problems, and now I'm getting this freezing thing. Both the keyboard and mouse are USB connections. Everything else works when the freeze occurs, i.e., video's still play, web browser is still displaying gifs, etc. Only the mouse and keyboard freeze. All other operations seem normal.
I am trying to install fedora 10, 64 bit on computer with the following specification but the installation stops during installation (mouse , keyboard, screen freezes). Motherboard Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-ud4h rev.1.0 processor AMD phenom ii 940 I have updated the bios to the latest version.
recently i tried to install for the first time and everything booted up fine but when i got to the post install configuration my mouse and keyboard don't work! after that one time whenever i try to load linux it just sits at the boot screen where the colored bar goes left to right and has fedora text in the bottom right corner. i don't know if this matters or not but i'm dual booting with windows XP also i tried using a live cd of fedora 11 it always boots up to the login however just like above i can't use my mouse or keyboard for that one either.
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.
I recently got a new keyboard, and went with a Razer RZ03-0018. It's not working. I have Swedish as my default language, but it defaults to... enUS I believe. In System > Preferences > Keyboard > Layouts, I can't find the keyboard listed anywhere, and even though I have it set to "Swedish", I still get that weird enUS layout
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.
my keyboard layout keep changing from windows to windows. When I am using my French keyboard, I set the keyboard to English and it doesn't make the change for all the open windows, despite having selected the "separate layout for each windows" unselected.Plus if I am in firefox with a French layout go to another windows and come back to the firefox windows, the layout is back to GBR.
I've got an odd problem with the keyboard layout options.
I use caps as an additional control, as set in Keyboard Preferences > Layout > Options. However, I recently came across an issue where Shift + Space does not send space, so I go into the options to set space at any level to fix it, and while the option appears to have been selected, there is no change in behavior.
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...
