    Knoppix-STD - only comes with german keyboard? (german.kbd)

    Hi again all, I am remastering knoppix-std and currently am editing the boot image. when I mount the boot image for editing, I see there is only german.kbd and no other .kbd file. I have done a search on my system, but us.kbd or anything similar cannot be found. Can someone either post/send me us.kbd or equiv, or tell me where I can get it?
    thanks

    You create an us.kbd file yourself:
    Code:
    keytab-lilo us > us.kbd
    and copy it to the same location as german.kbd.

    Then you must add in /boot/isolinux/isolinux.cfg file a new line:
    Code:
    KBDMAP us.kbd
    Don't forget to change in APPEND line lang=de to lang=us.

    In:

    Code:
    /home/knoppix/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart
    add the line:

    Code:
    @setxkbmap fr

    PS - You should not refer to a very old thread of ...2005. You should have started a new thread in the General Support forum, and not in this forum.

    I want the French keyboard at the boot prompt offering various options before loading Knoppix.

    To get a French keyboard with knoppix I've modified the "lang=us" with "lang=fr" in the syslnx64.cfg. It works but not for the boot prompt evidently !

    any good idea on how to do it ?
