non-US keymap for both text mode and X
« on: June 29, 2017, 12:56:55 AM »
I'm running piCore 9.0.3 on RPi B+V1.2, with just Xorg and tigervnc-viewer extensions. I wonder how can set German keymap for both text mode and X.

My difficulty with the text mode is that the book mentions kmaps.tcz, which is (currently?) not found by tce-ab - otherwise I could use the kmap bootcode. A manual edit in /etc/sysconfig/keymap reverted after next boot, despite filetool.sh -b.

For X, it could be possibly easier with full TC.tcz installed, but that'd be an overkill for my application. tce-ab founds no tcz providing setxkbmap. Can creating /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf with proper XkbLayout value help in my case?

Am I thinking too sophisticated?

In X you have some options.
You can do it like this thread.

I have been quite detailed on this topic to another german user recently. Not in the mood to type it all out again without the tl;dr aspects, sorry.

You can get  kmaps.tcz  from the x86 repo, as it doesn't contain any x86 based binaries.

Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)
