Changing keyboard layout
« on: March 23, 2016, 09:49:10 am »

I am new to Vector and not very competent technically. I have installed the latest Vector Lite and must have missed the keyboard selection at installation as I have a US layout and want to change it to UK. Can someone tell me how to do this please. Please try and keep any answer simple.
Thanks

Open a terminal window, then su to become the root user.

After you enter the password, type 'vkmapset'
Select your keyboard map there.  YOu may need to reboot after that.
