Changing keymap in Xfce4?


How can I do that? I jsut changed it in the console but apparently it doesn't change the X system. I'm using Arch.

There is a preferences button on the toolbar, it looks like a wrench and a hammer. Preferences-->QX Window Manager-->Keyboard

Nope! Don't have it. On my keyboard settings all I can change is shortcuts and stuff. I'm pretty sure I need the edit the startup file regarding xorg or xfce4 but I don't know which one it is..

I didn't understand from your question if you wanted to change key bindings in the keymap you were using in xfce4, or the whole keymap in X. I think this must be done in xorg.conf and not in xfce. This way it will work in X no matter which WM you use.

I just looked in my xorg.conf and I don't have any specification so I must be taking the default. If you backup your xorg.conf and run xorgconfig again it will give you a list of keyboards. Or you could search for xorg.conf keyboard on this forum and maybe there will be a post which has info.

I don't know about your distro but it's normally saved in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
