qwerty to azerty
« on: November 03, 2018, 09:06:05 AM »
Bonjour... hello
i installed coreplus 9.0 on packard bell dot-s
everything is OK except
qwerty keyboard that does not go in azerty.

Kmap present (/ usr / share / kmap) with azerty file in
loadkmap </usr/share/kmap/azerty/fr-latin9.kmap = no change before and after reboot
loadkmap </usr/share/kmap/azerty/fr-pc.kmap = no change  before and after reboot
loadkmap </usr/share/kmap/azerty/azerty.kmap = no change  before and after reboot
loadkmap </usr/share/kmap/azerty/fr.kmap = no change  before and after reboot
the same by doing first
/opt/bootlocal.sh
the same with sudo ..
has anyone tested and succeeded?

Hi mogadon
Make sure that  kmaps  is installed  onboot.  Add the following boot code to your bootloaders config file:
Code: [Select]
kmap=azerty/fr-latin1Replace the  fr-latin1  part with the  azerty  filename of your choice. Reboot your machine and see if the change
took place.

Hi mogadon
Glad to hear you got it working. In case you ever need to make changes to your bootloaders config file in the future, it should
be located in  /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/boot/  and is called  extlinux.conf.  No need for a new installation, but you might need to
edit it using  sudo.  I would also like to suggest you read this excellent book:
http://tinycorelinux.net/book.html
It will provide you with useful insight on the inner workings of Tinycore.
