Re: how can I change my keyboard setting

Hi

Please rename the file /etc/kbdlang and restart the workstation.

#mv /etc/kbdlang /etc/kbdlang.old

It should ask you to select a keboard lang.

Also you can try the command xmodmap -pk.

It will display you the current Key-map of the KBD

Re: how can I change my keyboard setting

Hi cys691018,

Please see SK Chan's reply in the below thread:

http://forums13.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/parseCurl.do?CURL=%2Fcm%2FQuestionAnswer%2F1%2C%2C0x2eacba808b46d611abda0090277a778c%2C00.html&admit=109447627+1255669957763+28353475

So probably:
# mv /etc/kbdlang /etc/kbdlang.org
and then rebooting will let you select keyboard language.

If you do not want reboot, may be this might do the trick:
# man xmodmap

Hope this helps..
