since no-one has replied...try the following

firstly you should know exactly what keyboard you have....change the following pathway to suit....


I have a map which is hebrew.

2) Now there are some options on how to do it

a) easy attempt one

try either command...notice they had us...but yours will be non-abbreviated...hebrew

b) assuming that fails....I no longer have an xorg.conf....but you could edit and reboot into a new xorg.

pls make a backup somewhere and know how to use your slitaz as a rescue

so you will change the bit in link to new layout

.. Some considerations, I have collected, since the day
your question appeared :

Set language ..changing-default-language-from-command-line

Locales are in /use/share/X11/locale/ ?

I get this with the ' ls ' command :
ls /use/share/X11/ .. (there is nothing relevant in /usr/share/)

More than one problem if you want to change something :
There are no extra language packages for SliTaz.
The whole OS is a compressed file .. even after install.
It is uncompressed every time, you do a boot up.
But hopefully, all changes ( and package install's )
are saved when shutting down.
