keyboard layout
I'm a newbie. I have ubuntu 5.04 installed on my laptop. I've chosen english as my system language during the installation. On the keyboard layout screen I wanted ubuntu find my layout so I used "find my layout by pressing some keys" option. It found that it's 'turkish alt-q layout' which is true. but after the installation my keyboard acts as default english keyboard.

*I tried to change it using 'system>preferences>keyboard>layouts'
*I posted this problem on a forum. they advised me to change desktop>>gnome>>peripherals>>keyboard>>kbd
*I also tried 'loadkeys trq'
as you guess none of them worked.

I had the same problem with ubuntu live cd. if I choose Turkish as my system language, my keyboard works properly but if I choose English, I encounter the same problem.

Although I am a newb,

I have a silly answer to this. If you use for example kde, and change kbd layout (you add turkish) -then a little flag on the bottom right corner appears. By clicking on it you change your keyboard is not very handy but at least you can sweep between 2+languages.

Hope you will stay with Ubuntu :)

What order are you keyboard layouts listed when you are using the English set up?

(also are they both there on the layouts list when you use Turkish system?)

thank u
well both are listed, english & greek with the order mentioned.
Well, I use gnome where I do not have any problems... although i'd prefer kde because of the configuration abilities regarding desktops etc...
