changing keymap


hello,

the keymap in the console is fine, the charactors on screen correspond to the symbols on the keyboard, but when i startx and open an xterm(vi) the keymap changes and the charactors/keyboard do not then correspond. can anyone give a few pointers on how to change the keymap?

You could have easyly used forums search function
That question have poped up several times recently.

To change your keyboard map in the console, see this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...yboard-466719/

yes, it can be sometimes tricky to find right search words,
ask the right questions.

It was not ment to blame you, rather than encourage to first use
search and if it fails, then use forum.

Did you solved your problem with xorgconfig/xorgsetup or editing xorg.conf?
