Need to change keyboard layout
 
Hi,

On a Ultra 5 with a sun keyboard. Im currently missing '' '' ''.

I need to change the layout to Danish.

How do I do that?

Sincerely, Jorgen

Is it a danish keyboard with some non-functional keys, or is it a non danish keyboard where you want to add specific danish keys ?

Unlike PC keyboards, Sun keyboards, at least on SPARC hardware, are communicating their layout, so there is normally no need for a configuration.

The keyboard layout is settable internally in the keyboard with dip-switches, but should you do that, prepare for key labels mismatches.

Hi, and thanks for your reply.

The keyboard is english, so I want to add specific danish keys to its layout. Is this possible or should I get a danish one?

I looked underneith the keyboard, and there is a small opening with some small switches connected with some sort of a small wire. Is this the dip-switch?

Sincerely, Jorgen

These are indeed likely the dip switches.
Look for "Changing Between Keyboards on SPARC Systems" in
http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/817...i67tj40?a=view
for details.
