kubuntu keyboard layout Sweden? WUBI


I'm using WUBI install 7.1 build 385.

I managed to change from US to SE for Sweden but the layout is only partially right. дц works but not the a with a ring above
and the dash is not where I am used to.

What could I ahve done wrong? Or how could I get the dash and the other chars in right place again? I didn't have this problem when I did a
wubi 7.0404 ubuntu GNU install.

And this kubuntu version uses Konqueror which I write in now instead of Firefox. I don't even find Firefox? Isn't FF supported under KDE?

Logged in via another computer. I had to uninstall wubi kubuntu. I fail to get LAN card even to be seen by windows system So fail to use the computer.
The Led that should lite up when one connect a socket doesn't light up. So it seems that the faulty shut down procedur of linux destroyed the LAN card Eterhet card.

Very sad.

Could someone help please.

I tried to install the drivers again but they say that the Ethernet card could not be found. And it doesn't show up anywhere.

This wubi kubuntu 7.1 had the same shut down problem as the older one

Typical.

The unclean shutdown of Linux forced me to use the Power button to stop my computer. That action killed my LAN card.
So now I have deleted wubi Kubuntu and will not try it again on this hardware. XCCube Mini MZ915. Never made it to shut down cleanly.

I Talked to the Computer shop guy and he explained that when Linux shut down uncleanly then most likely this created a conflict when I started Windows so the internal security or protect sensed this and disabled the LAN circuity from overheating due to the short that conflict create. It is not confirmed by the Aopen folks but it sounds likely.



Here is how to get LAN going again.


Hit the Delete button when you see the Aopen logo before windows start loading. Hit it again and again until you see the choices and then go down to Periphericals.

There you change LAN to disable and do F10 and yes for save and then you let windows load and you go to start and shut the computer down the proper way. That makes the conflict go away and the security protection is lifted and the Windows System will find the LAN Card again

Then you restart your Aopen with the On button hit Delete again and again and then Enable hit F10 and Yes and then you go to System in the Control panel and go look for the Ethernet LAN card and you enable it and the LAN works again.

Wow I feel so lucky.

But Linux seems hard to get working on this Aopen Xc Cube MZ 915 Intel chip set computer. One should not be a newbie like me to get it going.

It is more likely that it was the non-proper shut down that caused it than a hardware failure due to the forced shutdown I had to do.

But it is the driver the Intel provided for the shutdown process that is not linux friendly.

Intel obviously has told Windows programmers to do a proper shut down but Linux programmer has either not access to that document or they don't want to allow it.

Intel should warn all buyers from trying to use Linux on this Aopen machine.
