Changing the keymap/local from the US?


#1

Hi

This might be sort of a newb question, but I can’t find the needed info anywhere.

The Organelle Linux is running a US locale/keymap, witch makes editing patches kinda troublesome when using a non-US keyboard (DK in my case). What I need is how to mount the fs as rw, since remount doesn’t seem to work, and after that what conf file to edit?

Any suggestions?

Also from Denmark here and also have that issue. I still have not found out how to make a ~ on the keyboard I use. And many other key commands are also troublesome.

I might be answering my own question here. I’m assuming that Organelle is running Arch Linux and I found this wiki-page on their site.

The instructions is good for a temp keyboard setup, but I cant find a vconsole.conf in /etc, making it hard to make the change persistent. If I figure it out I’ll make a small howto. :slight_smile
