Subject description: No sterling key etc.
 

I dont know if this is a bug or if I am just being stupid. Confused I should be using a UK keyboard but I appear to be on the US keyboard as the sterling sign is # and the " and @ are transposed. Obviously, I could have hit the wrong button when I booted the first time, but I cannot get it to change to UK keyboard using the keyboard/mouse wizard. This is in a type 2 install. Any suggestions appreciated, as I dont want to re-install again.

So you are saying the selection of the keyboard type in the wizard don't stick.

The only place I have seen where the keyboard is defined, is in xorg.conf.

Look in the "keyboard0" section and there is a line to choose the keymap.

I never did a change that way, but maybe it will work for you.

Thanks Be-em, that worked a treat. Thing is though, there were 2 xorg.conf files in the same directory. I thought that couldnt happen. One was for US and the other GB, so I renamed the US one and re-booted. It ran xorgwizard during boot, and when it came up, the keyboard was back to my usual GB setting. Guess there must be a bug somewhere, and I am wondering if it came in Nathans bugfixpatch that I recently applied? Nathan?......
Cheers, Mike

The patch would not have touched this at all, so not sure what might have been wrong.

That's interesting....I am still baffled about how 2 files with the same name can get into the same directory?
