Can't find needed keyboard layout

Postby fluxbox-beginner on Thu Nov 11, 2010 6:41 pm

Hi! I was Gnome user till now, and i really like the slickness of the fluxbox, i don't care much about the layout switching app for the panel, this is not a problem. I simply cannot find one of the layouts in System tools/preferences/keyboard and mouse, it is just not there? What do i do?
Today I asked a salesman in a local store, if the wireless keyboard that i was looking at, works in Linux? He said: What? What is that? I asked another one, and after a confused mime on his face he said: Yes. Why not? - It comes with batteries!))

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Linux/Unix is about freedom, Windows about slavery.

Hi mate! Sorry for being late but i cant manage to do it)
You gave me two links, the first talks about /etc/default/keyboard file which i don't have... and the second talks about editing xorg.conf where i need to edit the section "input device" which i also don't have. My xorg.conf looks like:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
DefaultDepth 24
EndSection

Section "Module"
Load "glx"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Default Device"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NoLogo" "True"
EndSection

and there is no section "keyboard" should i create it or what, or just please advise me what to do exactly?

Thank u very very much for attention and your patience

I cant figure out a way to change my keybard layout. I want to switch the Caps Lock with the Left-Ctrl, and then disable the bottom Lef-Ctrl. There is no option for that. I am using Linux Mint Debian Xfce version.
I'm not here for letters.. I'm here for the numbers\
