Cannot login into the system - keybord layout change unavailable


Hello, guys. I cannot login into my brand new Linux Mint 14(now I'm using my friend's computer to write this). I have my login and password in latin letters. But I didn't set the keyboard layout button(s)during the 1st session and now the language is in cyrillic script and I cannot change it (to the next 1, which is in latin). Please help! =)

It doesn't. I've also tried all other combinations, even the weirdest ones)) + every single key separately.

It's alright, we've all been newcomers ;-) Try logging in to a console (ctrl-alt-1), and entering the command:

Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
