Footnotes[edit]

  1. setxkbmap Man Page [archive]
  2. French keyboards:
    Perhaps an upstream bug.
    ( http://free.nchc.org.tw/clonezilla-live/stable/Known-issues-Clonezilla-live.txt [archive] )
    If you are using French Keymap, remember to use "Select keymap from full list":
    1. Select keymap from full list
    2. pc / azerty / French / Same as X11 (latin 9) /Standard
  3. Alternative /etc/default/keyboard method:
    Open file /etc/default/keyboard in an editor with root rights. (Qubes-Whonix ™: In TemplateVM)

    This box uses sudoedit for better security [archive]. This is an example and other tools could also achieve the same goal. If this example does not work for you or if you are not using Whonix, please refer to this link.

    sudoedit /etc/default/keyboard

  4. Alternative loadkeys method:
    Temporary until reboot.
    sudo loadkeys de

  5. The Qubes bug reporting the change does not propagate to other VMs [archive] has now been resolved.
