A search in the forums for "keyboard layout" will give you many results, solving your problem.
You should edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf (as root) and change the xkbdLayout to your language (IIRC)

No need to install extra libraries.

Best Regards

This is the way i have changed my xorg.conf but no way:
Code: [Select]
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier  "Keyboard0"
Driver      "kbd"
Option     "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option  "XkbLayout"  "it"
Option  "XkbModel" "pc105"
EndSection
Bye.

5.9 is still in the testing stage. This may be a bug that should be reported here:
http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum2/index.php?board=30.0
Pick the thread that corresponds with the RC version you are using, 1 or 1.3.

If you want a stable version, 5.8 is a good choice. Especially the SOHO version, as KDE has additional international features.
