Keyboard characters


Hi,

I just installed Debian, but unfortunately I selected a US keymap. Since I have a Swedish keyboard I would like to change this. How do I setup a Swedish keymap?

Please help me it´s urgent.

on command line: setxkbmap se
You may add this command in your startup scripts.

If you are using gnome or kde, you may use keymap switcher applets. Click on the panel and choose 'add an applet' etc.

Best,
Ott

Well... and there is a keymap line in X11 configuration file (in my case /etc/X11/XF86config-4):


Section "InputDevice"
...
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "dk"

EndSection

You may chage this (in my case "dk") to "se". Then you have swedish keyboard as default for everyone.
