Question Changing the keyboard Layout from UK to US (Debian)


Here's my drama,

I've recently changed from RH9 to Debian,

During installation (one of the first questions) I selected UK keyboard.

Now my #'s are £'s etc.....

I've read up on the internet about this and some of the fixes (like compiling the kernal) are beyond my scope.

Whats the simplist way to do this?

For KDE, look in Control Center
Regional & Accessibility
Keyboard Layout
and
Country/Region & Language

Depending on what else you selected at install, you may need to fix the time zone also.

I don't have the x-window-system or kde system installed

This is happening in the Debian console

I still have the same problem, but I'm patient

I'm sure someone out there knows what to do
