Wrong keyboard Lay-out in Login and terminal
#1
Dear all,

I do have the ISO Version (UK Lay-out)
I just recognized the default Debian image set up the keyboard for login
Screen to US (in graphical login)

I was able to fix this by setting /etc/default/keyboard
XKBLAYOUT=„gb“

Now the graphical login accepts the korrekt keymapping

Unfortunately the console (ctrl-alt-f1) is still at default US layout 
I tried to modify / create /etc/vconsole.conf and setting there 
KEYMAP=gb 

But there is no change.

Does anybody know where I should modify?

Thx 
Jens

In /etc/default/console-setup, you need to change the following:

from: 

CHARMAP="UTF-8"

to:

CHARMAP="ISO-8859-15"

After you reboot, the console (Ctrl-Alt-F1) will display the correct keyboard layout.
