I tried 'loadkeys dvorak' as root in Developer Console Terminal. It seemed to execute, but the keyboard layout did not change. Same for 'loadkeys fr' and loadkeys 'de'. So how do I change the keyboard layout in order to test non-QWERTY layouts? --Mokurai 03:40, 21 November 2007 (EST)

Hi,

There are several places that you can change the localisation settings I think.

One is:

/home/olpc/.i18n

Another is:

/etc/sysconfig/i18n

If you open either of these files as root, you will see something like:

LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
XKB_LAYOUT="en"

You might need to change both sets... Also there are changes you can make to the firmware too, so that if you update the system software, the machine remembers the correct layout.. Have a look at Checking_the_Layout_configuration for more info.
