Login language problem


Hi,

I've installed slackware 12.1 guest in vmware 6.5
and in xorgconfig i think i mistakenly chose another language or country
instead of english (usa).
Now, KDE loads automatically during boot and i can't type english at all
in the login screen.
Is there any way out of this problem ?
Thanks in advance.

Open /etc/X11/xorg.conf and look for the line Option "XkbLayout". Change it to:
Code:
Option "XkbLayout" "us"

thank you bathory but i've managed already to fix it by some googling.
first i prepared a SLAX live cd and from there i've changed it by VI
editor.
i'm in a learning curve and i'm happy i've managed to settle it by myself.
Thanks anyway.
