MX Snapshot create ISO with other keyboard layout


Hello,

I use MX Linux 17+1, with german Language.
/etc/default/keyboard contain:
Quote:
# KEYBOARD CONFIGURATION FILE

# Consult the keyboard(5) manual page.

XKBMODEL="pc105"
XKBLAYOUT="de"
XKBVARIANT="deadacute"
XKBOPTIONS="grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll,terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"

BACKSPACE="guess"
The /etc/default/keyboard in ISO Image created with MX Snapshot contain:
Quote:
# KEYBOARD CONFIGURATION FILE

# Consult the keyboard(5) manual page.

XKBMODEL="pc105"
XKBLAYOUT="us"
XKBVARIANT=""
XKBOPTIONS="grp:alt_shift_toggle,terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp,grp_led:scroll"

BACKSPACE="guess"
Why change the keyboard-layout?

Greetings from cologne
Harald

the live system resets many of the system settings back to there defaults when a snapshot is done. however, you can add /etc/default/keyboard to the excludes list to keep your new default intact.

Hello dolphin_oracle,

thanks for your reply.
But this is the opposite. I want to include my /etc/default/keyboard, with "de"
If I add them to the excludes list, it will not be used.
There is no other entry for etc/default also.

Hello Harald,

I think you misunderstood dolphin_oracle. The default keboard is most likely "us". The solution given to your issue should give the results you want.

I'm sorry you are right, what I proposed won't work.

try editing /usr/local/share/live-files/general-files/etc/default/keyboard

to match what you want. this is the file that replaces /etc/default/keyboard when the snapshots are built.
