keyboard problems


Hello,

I'm using a Kubuntu 8.10 with KDE 4.1.
My keyboard is Cherry RS 6000 M and it is not correctly recognized by the system.
I installed the linux using a german keyboard (QWERTZ) and after that I changed it with the Cherry (QWERTY).
After that I remarked that when I'm using the the console, logging with the KDE interface or under KDE, I have some problems with the mapping of the keys. For example my `#` button is situated near the `ENTER` button but in fact to use this symbol I have to hit `SHIFT` + `3` ...
I tried to reconfigure the keyboard settings under KDE, changing with some other keyboard layouts but it doesn't work.
Do you have any ideas how to configure this keyboard ?


Best regards,

Anton

Did you try configuring it via the KDE Control Centre? Go into Regional & Accessibility and then Keyboard Layout and pick the country whose keyboard layout you want. You need to download the appropriate kde-i18n package for the keyboard layout. I use kde-i18n-engb for the British English keyboard. You can have more than one and enable a little flag icon on your panel. One click switches from one to the other.
cheers,
jdk
