Keymap


I have been running Austrumi Linux 2.3.2 for a couple of days now and i like what i see. But could anyone tell me why there is no option to set an English keymap?

Hello and welcome to LQ!

http://www.punbb-hosting.com/forums/....php?id=361890
I think this is what you are looking for. Please note, for english, the normal abbreviation for an English keymapping is EN.

It's says it's slackware based ,
so have a look if you find a file called /etc/rc.d/rc.keymap

it contents should be
Quote:

if [ -x /usr/bin/loadkeys ]; then
/usr/bin/loadkeys en.map //or us.map
fi
Make sure the file is executable and reload it ( or reboot)

Not wanting to seem ungrateful for the advice given so far but it is like a foreign language to a noob like me. Seems a pity that i will not be able to run Austrumi Linux from my hard drive all because there is no option for an English keymap, en-UK.

Thanks for the replies both.

I came across this - http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/oth...-austrumi.html
I never used that distro, so sorry I can't be of full assistance.

Hiya Josh, The language is easy to set in the menu after the OS has loaded but i don't have a clue about there not being a keymap: en-UK option? Thanks for the replies though.

Or maybe switching to a different distro? Just a thought, I'm not trying to get you to give up on it just yet. Maybe someone else out there knows more than me about switching out keymaps.....
