How change keyboard layout on Debian LXDE ?
#1
Question 
Hi,

Can someone tell me where I can change the kayboard layout from QWERTY to a Belgian AZERTY layout on Debian LXDE ?

I have search all the settings and could not find any regarding country and keyboard layout.

Any help is welcome ;-)

Cheers
Regards, G33RT

The keyboard file is read only and set attrib does not work as I have no permission.
Don't now how to get root access.

Quote:# KEYBOARD CONFIGURATION FILE
 
# Consult the keyboard(5) manual page.
 
XKBMODEL="pc105"
XKBLAYOUT="us"
XKBVARIANT=""
XKBOPTIONS=""
 
BACKSPACE="guess"

I have found out by myself, here is what I have done.
via command terminal set root password:

Quote:sudo passwd root

go to etc/default/
set attrib 775 to file keyboard

Quote:sudo chmod 775 keyboard

now you can change keyboard file with vi editor

Quote:sudo vi keyboard

change rule XKBLAYOUT="us to XKBLAYOUT="be"

exit vi with :q

reboot

your done!
Regards, G33RT
