Keyboard layout - how to chose it permanently?


I am new to Mocha and Bodhi.

I managed to find the setting to chose my italian keyboard layout (which, unforunately, it is not possible to chose during install....)

However, I got the message "Keyboard layout changed for this session", and every time I log out I have to chose it again.

I suppose it is because I am not root.

So: how can I make it permanent? Must I create a root desktop user? Or there is a way to sudo it?

Thank you very much

Have you tried following the instructions from their wiki?

If that does not help, take a look at /etc/default/keyboard. Bodhi seems to be based on Ubuntu, which seems to use that file for keyboard configuration. (Short of a an Ubuntu system I can't test here, but that's what a quick web search turned out...)

EDIT: I should add that most definitely you do not need to create a root desktop user. There are very few distros out there that expect you to run a desktop session as root.

Hello

Try to follow this thread:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...or-4175637609/

EDIT: you can also answer some questions in this keyboard wizard via terminal:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

Yes, of course. Here it's what it says
2) Keyboard Layout
Simply select your keyboard layout from the drop-down menu and click Apply Selected.
I will try and have a look to the /etc file you say. I have Kubuntu on an other PC, therefore it should be easy to check

Or I will try the keyboard module, but I am confident it is already installed...

Nice try, but it didn't work. I managed to change the file and set it identical to my Kubuntu one, than I rebooted, and the keyboard stayed the american one.

This was really helpful. The keyboard module+gadget did the trick.

Thanks to everybody.
