Ubuntu :: Switching Keyboard Layout In Console Only?

Feb 7, 2010

I am logging into an Ubuntu 8.04 machine using ssh, so I use a console. The keyboard layout is US-standard, obvioulsy. However, I would like to use french-canadian keyboard layout. And I don't know at all how to switch it in console. Give me Gnome or KDE, and we're done. But this is console only. I guess it has to do with the loadkeys command. Ok. I retrieved from the web a file cf.map.gz. Maybe ubuntu requires a different kind of file? Using "locate cf.map" I get nothing, except the file I have downloaded. Any package I should demand to be installed? (if yes, what do I do once they are in?) I tried using both the .gz and uncompressed files.

Code:

loadkeys cf.map.gz
Couldnt get a file descriptor referring to the console

Code:

loadkeys -u cf.map.gz
Couldnt get a file descriptor referring to the console
Loading cf.map.gz

[code]....

They tell us about some program, console-data, using root privileges. Intriguing, but I am only a user, and do not have any root privileges. The system admin. has never used another keyboard layout, and knows even less than I on this matter. I tried similar stuff on my openSUSE at home, on a newly created experimental account, and I am equally unable to change within the console the keyboard layout (similar error messages).

Debian :: Console Keyboard Layout Not Set On Boot?

Jul 13, 2010

I have console only on my machine and I have two problems with it:

1) I can't find how to enable programmer dvorak keyboard layout.

2) All the console settings don't stay after reboot, I have to do dpkg-reconfigure console-setup again. But after I do that I loose russian layout that I normally can switch to with Alt+Shift.

Debian Configuration :: Changing Keyboard Layout On Console?

Apr 9, 2010

I know there are many threads regarding this topic.I probably read most of them. At installation time I told Debian to use German keyboard layout (since I am from Germany). Now I want to switch it to American keyboard layout. In X this was no problem. But in the tty consoles I cant get it changed. It does not matter to me if it is system wide or user wide because I am the only user. (system wide would be a little bit more preferrable because it would affect the super user too, I think).I tried dpkg-reconfigure console-data
and selecting my desired layout. This changes the Layout to American until reboot

Slackware :: Get Rid Of Unicode Console Fonts And Keyboard Layout?

Nov 23, 2010

I use Slackware 13.1. So far I chose during the installation of the system lat2a-16.psfu.gz font and my applications worked well in console mode. Now the same applications with the same font display gridded rectangles instead of some diacritical characters. In /etc/rc.d/rc.font I have standard setfont -v lat2a-16.psfu.gz command:

/etc/rc.d/rc.font:

Code:

setfont -v lat2a-16.psfu.gz

In /etc/rc.d/rc.keymap I have standard loadkeys pl2.map command:

/etc/rc.d/rc.keymap:

Code:

if [ -x /usr/bin/loadkeys ]; then /usr/bin/loadkeys pl2.map; fi

Standard setfont -v lat2a-16.psfu.gz command reports for some reason loading of the Unicode mapping table:

# setfont -v lat2a-16.psfu.gz

Code:

Loading 256-char 8x16 font from file /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/lat2a-16.psfu.gz
Loading Unicode mapping table...

[code]....

I examined /etc/rc.d directory but I didn�t find the setting switching the console to the Unicode mode. The same with env and set commands outputs. I tried to overwrite Slackware 13.1 /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/lat2a-16.psfu.gz with lat2a-16.psfu.gz file provided in kbd packages from Slackware 12.2 and 11.0 but the results were the same. I suppose the problem is caused by improper handling of the system settings by the kernel but I�m not sure.how can I get rid of Unicode console font and keyboard layout and come back to ISO-8859-2 font and keyboard?

Debian :: Unreadable Characters In Console Mode And In Keyboard Layout?

Oct 10, 2010

I'm getting a weird charset problem in a chroot'ed system that I kexec'ed into. It is especially noticeable in ncurses programs like aptitude, but it also noticeable in vim. [URL] My locales are configured to en_US.UTF-8, I have choosen my keyboard layout with kbd-config while in the chroot before kexec'ing into it, I've passed the bootkbd= parameter to the kexec'ed kernel, and my TERM variable is set to "linux". I can't try xterm because this chroot system doesn't has X.

EDIT: I just noticed that the keyboard layout I selected is not working properly. All keys work fine except the ones that are specific to my country. Instead of ç I get a weird symbol.

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.

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.

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.

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 Installation :: Stalling At Keyboard Layout (Lucid)?

Apr 29, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Choose The Keyboard Layout The Installation Freezes

Apr 11, 2011

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.
