switching between keyboard outlays


Hi guys! I use a Ubuntu distro with multiple keyboard outlays installed. How can I switch between them, while using a non graphical tty? On the graphical one, ctrl + shift works fine.
Thanks

You can use:
Code:
loadkeys /usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwerty/wanted-keymap.gz
Replace "wanted-keymap.gz" with the one you want to use. The layout is changed by pressing "Alt-Shift".
You can take a look here for mor details (it's for greek) but you can customize it accordingly.

Regards
