View Full Version : Keyboard Map

07-05-2009, 02:50 PM
Is there a way to permanently change the keyboard layout to GB instead of the default US?

I already changed it manually to gb in the xorg.conf however every time I restart KNOPPIX, the setting in xorg.conf resets back to US and i will have to type: setxkbdmap gb in a console to set the correct keyboard map for my PC.

any help is appreciated.

Yes i fixed it like this:

As root, locate the script named mkxorgconfig (if i'm not mistaken). It's a script that knoppix executes at boot to recreate xorg.conf with the settings present in the script.

Find the keyboard stanza in the script and replace the keyboard layout with "gb". It will be set to some $parameter. Just delete that and replace it with "gb".

Hope this helped.

good luck
