How do I change the TTY KB layout after install?

Postby B3njamin on Wed Jul 11, 2012 7:40 am

So, when I installed Linux Mint ages ago I used QWERTY, but I recently changed to Dvorak(the UK variant) and now I need to change the layout that the TTY uses (it doesn't use what my DE does, so I can't log into a TTY since my keyboard is labelled for Dvorak, and I can't see my password when typing it..)

Surely there is a file somewhere that I can edit to change this? I'm using Linux Mint 11 (No, I will not upgrade :P)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi,

just do a "dpkg-reconfigure console-data" and select the keymap you want to use.
