TinyCore Linux with french keyboard map
« on: June 07, 2010, 02:15:53 PM »
Hi All,

I've successfully installed TinCore Linux on my old box.
The only missing part is the keyboard map.

Even after following the hint at http://tinycorelinux.com/faq.html#keyboard (both on the shell and in /opt/opt/bootlocal.sh)
nothing changed :
$ loadkmap < /usr/share/kmap/fr-latin9.kmap

My keyboard is still considered US.
Any hint guys?

Regards
Zab

Hi

First of all, I think this is the wrong section...

And second, the bootlocal.sh is located at /opt/bootlocal.sh and not /opt/opt/bootlocal.sh
If that does not work, maybe you should check your menu.lst

Hi Batnas,

Thanks for correcting the section and sorry about the little typo.
In my previous post, I mean that I've tried to change my keyboard map by using /opt/bootlocal.sh but no chance
even after a reboot.

Regards
Zab.

Can't confirm. Loaded it, and typed "qwerty" on my fi keyboard:



You might want to use the bootcode, if kmaps.tcz is loaded, add kmap=fr-latin9 to your boot stanza.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Thanks guys. After a full re-install (maybe I did something wrong, I'm really new to TinyCore) everything is fine now.

On my other Linux (ArchLinux), I've the following settings for my french keyboard and locales:
KEYMAP="fr-latin9"
CONSOLEFONT="lat9w-16"

It's OK for the KEYMAP, but what's the equivalent for "CONSOLEFONT" under TCL?

Moreover, I'd like to set my locales to "french" too!
For that, I tried to put "kmap=fr-latin9 lang=fr_FR.UTF-8" to my boot stanza.
After the boot, calling "locale" returns the correct settings in "LC_*" env variables, but with some warnings:
$ locale
locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory
LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="fr_FR.UTF-8"
...
LC_IDENTIFICATION="fr_FR.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=

Could I ignore these warnings?
Help please?
