gdm is qwerty and should be azerty as everywhere else

Hi you questioners/answerers out there!

my situation:

debian 4 on a thinkpad T61 (works great, including dual screen)
console (the "ctrl-alt-fX ones") are azerty
gnome is azerty
GDM is qwerty
I am disapointed

What could I do? I looked for an entry in /etc/gdm, but found nothing

Thanks for your help.


P.S.: If I get an answer, I'll find 5 "more noobies than I" and try to help them to get everyone happy and a bit smarter tonight

(well, I think I'll do it anyway, I have a bit time to spend today...)

Thanks - that's it

I juste post the solution directly in case anyone else needs it:

Section "InputDevice"
# generated from default
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "be"

Thanks a lot for your help!
