Hardware and software: an old P3 "unbranded" laptop running Slackware 13
Me: linux newbie
During the installation, the setup notified me that I'm using a different keyboard layout, so I conducted some tests and finally found the keyboard match as QWERTZ/de_CH-latin1.map
After finishing the installation I could login and use the system prety nice in text mode, but in XFCE GUI the keyboard map is set to default US.
I've found an old topic about a very similar problem here:
Unfortunately the solution founded there doesn't work for me.. it seems that editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf
or running xorgsetup
doesn't have an effect in my xfce.
The only thing that works is setxkbmap
command and GUI wizards.
To complicate things, the laptop physical keyboard layout has a key named "Alt GR
" which allows me to type a 3rd character on some keys, for instance on key 3:
Key 3 only shows character: 3
Shif + key 3 show character: *
Alt Gr + key 3 show character: #
How can I change the keyboard layout for xcfe to de_CH-latin1.map?
