setxkbmap it
« on: March 13, 2016, 04:45:04 pm »
I installed sparkylinux minimalgui with fluxbox but the keyboard is not configured well, if I do setxbmap it works but when I reboot does not work.

Try:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
Nothing is easy as it looks.

And if you have problems from a non-standard keyboard (Chicony kb for me was mapped weird)  - one can use "xev" to see exactly what the keyboard is outputting to X  "man xev"

I think that setxkbmap is only for graphical desktop environment. It's not a command for cli interface.

yes, you could, but have you re-configured keyboard-configuration to set it right?

i-ve tried with udo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration today, after the setxbmap it and now, before i did try anything else:
it automatically selects the italian layout, and now, after the configuration i still have the english layout....
