[SOLVED] Openbox - wrong keyboard layout

Postby pawRoot » 2018-01-10 15:10

Hi

I have a wrong keyboard layout in Openbox clean install, is there an easy way to change it via terminal or do i have to edit xorg options?

Start here.

I don't think that the keyboard is a function of Openbox or even Debian. It's a basic Linux selection. Some desktops may have controls but they just trigger the Linux function.

If the above link doesn't help then look in Systemd.

Maybe someone who knows what to do will step in and rescue me here.

Try :
Code: Select all
$ man xkeyboard-config   
XKEYBOARD-CONFIG(7)    Miscellaneous Information Manual    XKEYBOARD-CONFIG(7)

NAME
       xkeyboard-config - XKB data description files

DESCRIPTION
       xkeyboard-config provides the description files for the X Keyboard
       Extension (XKB). The configuration options below are usually applied
       with setxkbmap(1).
---------snip------------------------

 

If you are not using Xorg, then some search foo, according to what you are using.

Can we see
Code: Select all
localectl

The output from both i3 and openbox may provide an informative comparison ;)
I suffer from depression and may lash out occasionally, try not to take it personally.

I fixed it

# dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
# service keyboard-setup restart


Works fine now after restart.

Thanks all
