Post Keyboard Setting on CentOS


In the Time of installation of CentOS, I have setting the keyboard as "Italian"

Now I must change this layout in "U.S."

I have tryed to set the keyboard via graphic-interface(gnome), but The layout come back in "Italian" to each re-login

Can I change the keyboard setting permanently?

Try this. My compliments on your choice of distro, it wasn't exactly what I needed, but its very stable, secure, and "feels" like a work-horse.
