keyboard layout german

Post by Jonathan C Bus » Mon, 10 Jan 2000 04:00:00



I'm trying to ween myself from using gnome and kde because I've run out of
room on my harddrive and I need to learn the text command for changing the
keyboard layout from german to english and back. I've tried using xkbcomp
and other xkb* stuff and even echo "KEYTABLE=de" > /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
but nothing phases it.  Does anyone know the command for this?

load keyboard mapping at X start is done by
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc
you can see there that you can load modmap at user or system level.
I choose system level and did a
cp /usr/share/xmodmap/xmodmap.be /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/.Xmodmap
(there's a dot in front the X !!)

have fun

Hi!

Ultra5 running Solaris 2.8 with Recommended&Security patch cluster from
July 2003 applied.
The machine uses the correct, US/English keyboard layout in console mode
and in the dtlogin screen (old keyboard was a german one... but that was
assassinated with little help from Pepsi, Inc.) ... but when the user
loggs in he has a german keyboard layout (a horror if someone uses the

anyone have an idea what may cause this problem (there is no file like
~/.key* in ${HOME}) ?
