    Language

    I am new to Linux and have spent a few weeks trying out the various distro's. I keep coming back to Knoppix as it
    really seems the best.
    I have one problem though, every time I boot I have to type in "knoppix lang=uk" to get the Uk keyboard. Surely there is a way to incorporate this
    into the boot sequence somehow ?
    If someone can solve this one I would be very grateful indeed.
    Regards to all

    Open the File Manager (PCManFM) and go to: Knoppix-boot-syslinux and then edit syslinux.cfg (click and write). Add the line lang=uk in all the lines and save it. Reboot

    Tried that in various ways, but still no luck.
    This is my original syslinux.cfg file;

    DEFAULT loadconfig

    LABEL loadconfig
    CONFIG /boot/isolinux/isolinux.cfg
    APPEND /boot/isolinux

    Thanks philo and joselb, I have tried it and still I get the US keyboard layout 1
    This is the layout of my syslinux.cfg file as it was
    DEFAULT loadconfig

    LABEL loadconfig
    CONFIG /boot/isolinux/isolinux.cfg
    APPEND /boot/isolinux


    I have tried adding lang=eng and indeed lang=uk into the start of every line also at the end and under each line but I still get the US layout.
    I am using Knoppix 7.4 on a stick btw.

    Have a look at → Micro-Remastering

    LABEL loadconfig
    CONFIG /boot/isolinux/isolinux.cfg
    APPEND /boot/isolinux
    This isn't the origin file!

    @felinus The cheatcode, lang=uk, works for me. Maybe you have just edited the wrong file. The /mnt-system/boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg file (mentioned in the link from Post #8 ) probably is the one you are after.

    You are doing it in the wrong file! Anyway, you can always open a terminal and type: setxkbmap=uk and you are done.
