cannot change keyboard map and login screen language
« on: September 13, 2009, 06:38:07 am »

Hi,
I have just installed VL6-Standard-Gold. It seemed that everything went well during the installation except two issues:
1. I cannot change my default keymap to hu (Hungarian) locale. I used VasmCC to change it; it was confirmed at the end of the process. However nothing actually changed; it defaulted to the us map again in the background. I found no way to temporarily/permanently change it to hu keyboard map.
2. I managed to change the language to Hungarian at the login screen. When I confirmed a permanent change the distro language went to Hungarian, but after logging out the login screen defaulted to English again. Funny enough, when I login again applications keep using Hungarian but login returns to English.
Any solution?
Rgds

Don't know the answer myself but this may help.

Make VectorLinux speak your language.

Zoli,
this is a problem with VASM, it can be fixed, see my last post on this thread:

Thank you no2thesame, I appreciate. It is the solution for both issues. Hopefully Vasm/VasmCC will soon be fixed for this.
