How to restore keyboard layout preference file


Hi,

My keyboard layout preference file got corrupted.
I basically had 3 languages in the keyboard layout, I deleted one and changed the default language.
After doing so I rebooted my system and then I got the message that the file is corrupted and now I can't type a word in English :S

I'm using Suse 10.3.

Is there any way I can restore the file?? Is it possible to copy the file from another user on the system to fix this? If so, what file I need to copy and where is located?

Please help me on this one.

Thank you all in advance

Linuxlainen

Don't you have a button "reset to defaults"?Why not add the language you deleted?

Then you have to fix it manually.The config file could be located in /etc or /dev.Did you try to login as root and fix it.You could maybe delete the user that deleted the file and create a new one,or you could try to fix it with live cd/dvd if you have one.
