Hi. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it doesn't, unfortunately. I changed to "uk" and still ended up with the same (wrong) keystrokes that I had before.
colonel panic ok thanks for testing our first two efforts please try number three.................Smiley
download and install this package: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/vec7/vlkbdset-0.1-noarch-vl70.txz
then run vasm and let us know if any success or failure.
Fingers crossed!!

Cheers,
Vec

Hi. I've tried it again, but sadly with the same result; the keyboard won't change over from the US one.

Did you log out of X or restart the computer after the change? I don't believe it is expected to make the change "live".

Also, can you please confirm that you're using RC3.4 here and not an older one? Xorg had problems with this in some older releases. `cat /etc/vector-version`

Thanks for replying.

Did you log out of X or restart the computer after the change?

Yes I did, twice (three times if you count today).

And still the problem remains, unfortunately. On holding down the shift key and typing across the top from left to right, I get the following;

~!@#$%^


 I don't believe it is expected to make the change "live".

True.

Also, can you please confirm that you're using RC3.4 here and not an older one? Xorg had problems with this in some older releases. `cat /etc/vector-version`

Yep, I did that and got this;

7.0 STD RC3.4 built on OCT-01-2001

So it is the current one.

Best,

Colonel Panic,

can you install this pkg: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/Uelsk8s/vlkbdset-0.1-noarch-2vl70.txz
It should let you set the keymap so that it works in terminal and X upon reboot. let us know if it works for you.

Thanks,

This maybe a dumb question, but I really dont know. Is there a difference between the gb and uk keymaps?

Well according to setxkbmap there is no such thing as uk map, however, there is a gb map.

Why is "at" not anymore included in the services of VectorLinux? One has to copy it first from /etc/rc.d/init.d/sample to ../init.d. Then run services. Is it that no one is using "at" anymore? I use it all the time. It's fast and easy. Other distros have it still as a standard.

Hi,

I installed the new package today. Still isn't happening I'm afraid;

~!@#$%^&

Wish I could say otherwise.

Thanks anyway,

Check your ~/.bash_profile for anything like "setxkbmap". Also make sure your ~/.Xmodmap file is empty.

I discovered just today that my .bash_profile had a line put in it by the installer that was preventing keyboard setting from working as expected.

Thanks for your advice. I'm in Vector 6.0 KDE Classic (still a good distro) at the moment but will try that the next time I'm in 7.0.

Flawless installation. Didn't even have to pause the boot at GRUB to add rootdelay=10 which I thought was rather sweet.

One issue found so far, and that's the lack of .fdi files for policies. Wanted to set things up to disable my touchpad, but the required policy file is non-existent with this version. >.<

Will play around some more with it. So far, liking what I see. Very polished and looking GOOD!

Looking at vcpufreq. powernow-K8 is still standard. K10 should be included for the newer CPUs.

Installed it on my Samsung N110 netbook.
Installation went without problems. Everything is working out of the box ( wireless, touchpad,..)
Using VL Quickpicks makes it very easy to install frequently used programs.
The only bug i'm having at the moment is when I try to set up screensaver. Xscreensaver is saying the deamon is not running and when clicking ok to activate, I get the following error :
Code:
The xscreensaver daemon did not start up properly.Please check your $PATH and permissions.

That's all for now.

nicdm

Got the same thing on my Toshiba notebook.

What is debug (/var/log/debug) used for and why is it getting larger every second?

File is at 4.5MB and climbing. Here's a sample of what it's filling with.
