I am using Fedora12 on desktop.
I tried to change keymap from systm->preferences->keyboard->layout.
This changes my keymap successfully.
I want to perform above activity using command line for my powerpc target. My powerpc target environment do not have KDE,GNOME or any x-windowing support.Can any one help me? which command and which files to be overlooked for this?
Possibly setxkbmap, though that's usually used for language--for example, on a US keyboard, if I go setxkbmap gb I get the British monetary pound sign £ for shift+4. If I then go setxkbmap us it goes back to #.
In most cases, the files would be in /usr/share/X11/xkb but I'm not sure what you need under there. However, the man page indicates that you can use -keycodes or -keymap as an option, and under that xkb directory are both keycodes and keymap and both have Macintosh listed as an option.
thanks for reply.
system-config-keybaord not works on my target. It shows command not found.
additionally i tried setup command which is not working on my target. It shows command not found.
Also i tried loadkeys on my target but it loads only keymap for jp106 when i try "loadkeys jp106".
When I connect japanese keyboard, it seems that keyboard layout has not changed(e.g on JIS keyboard we have doublequote(") at 2,but when I press shift+2,it still shows me @ symbol. This shows that my keylayout is still US keyboard layout) My problem is how will i change keyboard layout from command line? Is there anything else I need to do on my target other than "loadkeys"?
Hi all, kindly note that my target environment do not have x windowing system.
