Wrong Keyboard Layout at Login Window (Mint 16 Cinnamon)

Postby Algainst on Wed Feb 12, 2014 3:10 pm

Hello,

Using: Cinnamon on Mint 16 Petra, 64bit, german.

Problem:
The Login Panel for Cinnamon has english keyboard Layout, while the console and the Desktop using the correct, german keyboard.
This is with html5 login also as with GTK Login screen. others not tested yet.

Also in Updates there is repedetly the errormassege "no suppurt for udf8de_DE" while performing updates and installations. This error occours since Mint Maya 13 constantly (64 and 32bit version).
Language Updates didn’t solve this problem (from prefferences). The german settings where Updated system wide with the corresponding Button.

My Questions:
What steps are necessary to fix this?
Is it possible to disable html5 (and other uneeded) Loginin screens permanently?
What is the login system with the least vulnerability for exploids?

thx

These Functions where ok (exept the utf8de_DE messege) until an automatic update of some cinnamon releted files.

File /etc/default/keyboard is not existing and as far i can tell it isnt in previous backups of the system either. thx for the tip, but im not intending to patchwork with making unecessary files.

I still like to remove the multiple choices of login screens and fix the keyboard layout in that specific module. Any hints where to start loking or solutions for that are welcome.

Also there is still the issue with the utf-8de_DE error Massage. I found a solution on the web, which i have no clue what it does or why this is necessary after every installation in all versions i tried of linuxmint.
- sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
- sudo update-locale LANG=de_DE.UTF-8
- sudo locale-gen --purge --no-archive
- sudo update-initramfs -u -k all

thx
