How to change the keyboard used on the console of DCO (after installation)?

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Everard Eduard on 2018-10-22


The customer wants to move from azerty to querty.

During install he selected only azerty.

How can he change/add a keyboard (for use in the console) ?

Hi Eduard,

I think you can do it by using the loadkeys command (for temporary settings) and/or localectl command for permanent settings. If it should be unavailable on your system, then install the kbd package first.

ssh log in to the server, and:

sudo -i

yum install kbd

For example the following (loadkeys uk) will temporarily change systems keymap to UK:

loadkeys uk
Loading /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/uk.map.gz

 

To list all available keymaps on your CentOS system run:

localectl list-keymaps

That will produce a long list:

find the layout that you want to change to (ex. US), and then enter the following command to permanently change to eg. us keymap:

localectl set-keymap us

And then to confirm your permanent settings execute the localectl command without any argument:

localectl

 

Kind regards
