Information about the OS / keyboard-layout


#1

hi,

where can I find any further information about the operating system !? just want to configure some basical things, german-keyboard-layout for instance (especially for the X-system), the filemanager (PCManFM) is not remembering set preferences et cetera …

thanks for any hints + best
stefan

ok, I figured it out on my own (the keyboard-layout-issure), maybe it’s helpful for someone else as well:

as the OS is arch-linux, the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-keyboard.conf has to be created and should contain (for instance in case of a german-language-keyboard) the following:

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "keyboard"
MatchIsKeyboard "yes"
Option “XkbLayout” "de"
Option “XkbVariant” "nodeadkeys"
EndSection

and as the filesystem is mounted read-only you first have to remount it:

mount / -o remount,rw

(as it can be found here _> Using a wifi adapter)

another thing is: how to set the systemtime premantly !?

eg, date -s ‘Fri Dec 30 08:50:00 UTC 2016’ works fine, but organelle switches back after a restart !?
