How to change the keyboard map from the terminal

posted in: Tutorials | 0

teminalSince my laptop HDD died last week I’ve been using a USB flash with Lubuntu 13.04 with persistance, and several other live distros.

I’ve found something annoying, like after each boot (even with persistance enabled) I need to change my keyboard map to Portuguese.


$ setxkbmap -v pt

in the terminal does the trick. -v parameter is opcional verbose mode, and pt  is my keyboard layout (change it to your language). This simple command is quite usefull across many distros
