console keyboard layout is not correct layout

Post by lsatenstein » Tue Nov 26, 2013 11:14 pm

Doing the English installation for Cinnamon 16 x 64 bit, the installation starts with English USA keyboard layout. Subsequently I eliminate the USA Keyboard layout and select the Canadian French layout.
In Graphical mode, the French layout is correct. The graphic terminal mode is correct, but the tty1-tty5 mode, is set to the USA keyboard. which is absolutely wrong.

This is one problem that needs fixing because my passwords contain characters not in the USA English layout.

Did you use the "Regional Settings" applet in "System Settings" ?
I have also removed the US keyboard layout only through this applet, and I have no pb with tty login mode [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[F1-F5]
