QWERTY keyboard support

Postby SteveC » 10 Aug 2015, 15:23

Could you build in an uption to select a QWERTY keyboard layout, possibly by editing the config.text file in the windows partition, after writing the image to SD card.

As a workaround (using my QWERTY UK keyboard connected) I had to log in to the command line and run the following:
vi &etc&vconsole.conf [displayed as vi /etc/vconsole.conf]
&de <return> [displayed as /de <return>, to jump to the 'de' characters]
Ruk <esc>[ to replace the rest of the line with 'uk', then escape back to the command mode]
YY [displayed as ZZ, to write and quit the vi editor]
After rebooting, the 'z' and 'y' characters match my keyboard, and I can find the special characters!

This didn't work for me as I cannot get the < > symbols on my keyboard until it's altered

Thank You - this helped a lot - I set to us-latin1-nodeadkeys and have access to all keys now and as labelled on the keyboard.

When I wrote <return> or <esc>, I meant press the return key, or press the Esc key
