Author Topic: How to change keyboard layout at login screen?  (Read 1073 times)

I've just installed VectorLinux 7.0 (64 bit) using a "US" language and keyboard layout. Afterwards, I changed the keybord setting in XFCE to a german keyboard and I changed /etc/profile.d/ using "export LANG=en_US.UTF-8" (I prefer english menus etc).

After the next reboot, there was a ncurses window. Unfortunately, I couldn't read it (most of the text was covered with a blue area). But I think the last line was about configuring a keybord layout (that line was not the right one for me). So, what should I do? I hit Enter an was presented with a US keyboard layout, again.

Well, I know how to log in with this US keyboard layout but I would like to change that because my password contains some special characters.

When X is running, I've got a german keyboard layout. That's fine.

So, how can I change the keyboard layout at the login screen to "de_DE.UTF-8"?
