Default keyboard layout
I just installed PC-BSD on my Gateway 1450SE laptop and am blown away. Most Linux distros don't even recognize my flatpanel and PC-BSD recognized it with my regular resolution of 1024x768 to start.

My keyboard layout is screwed though. It defaults to the Generic 104-key PC setting and I've got it set to US English. When I try typing the PC-BSD site URL I get: htt*-++.www*cbsd.6rg+

Is there an X11Config file that needs to be adjusted? Everything looks to be correct in the Control Panel settings. Looks like my wireless card might need tweaking too.

Thanks.

Default simpler...
Go to kde control panel, search for regional settings and change your layout.

The installer must start taking care of this in the future though...

Cheers!

I already went into the control panel and made sure things were set right. I'm set for US English everywhere in it.

This is on my laptop BTW, my PC didn't need adjusting.

Windows lists the keyboard, again this is a laptop, as a "Standard 101/102-key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 keyboard".

I have the keyboard layout keymap set as US English and have tried the other English options. I've tried keyboard models of Microsoft Natural, Generic 101-key PC, Generic 102-key (intl) PC, and several others but still get a jumbled key layout.

I really can't do much to further my laptop installation at this point. Anybody got any idea how to clear it up?

EDIT: I was able to utilize my external MS Intellitype Pro keyboard with my laptop by hooking up the USB connection. It maps out keystrokes like it should so I can at least type, but I still need to get my onboard keyboard sorted out to continue using PC-BSD on it.

Edit: Try this first:

This solution maybe is the longest way to get in the finish line, so lets get started

Grab somewhere a paper and a pen. Go to website where is numbers and letters




Go to K - icon - KDE Programs - System - Konsole

write:

Code:
xev
you should see a square, its for mouse testing. You can forget that

Start pressing your keys.

Example im pressing 1 i get:



Code:
KeyRelease event, serial 30, synthetic NO, window 0x1600001,
    root 0xd4, subw 0x0, time 18743492, (-183,209), root:(495,234),
    state 0x0, keycode 10 (keysym 0x31, 1), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (31) "1"
and 2:

Code:
KeyRelease event, serial 30, synthetic NO, window 0x1600001,
    root 0xd4, subw 0x0, time 18824120, (-273,357), root:(405,382),
    state 0x0, keycode 11 (keysym 0x32, 2), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (32) "2"
write in the paper:

1. key you pressed

2. keycode

3. what does the screen show

when you have done this:

At konsole write:

Code:
xmodmap -e "keycode xx = x"
example

if 1 and 2 has changed place

i press 1, screen = 2

i press 2 = screen 1

Let see what was keycode when i pressed 2, then at konsole:

Code:
xmodmap -e "keycode 11 = 2"
now 2 is in the right place

for 1:

Code:
xmodmap -e "keycode 10 = 1"
you need to example in website to get 1 and copy paste to the konsole, I have tried my numpad 1 but didn't work, my solution was the website

I'm not expert explaining things but hopefully this helps you

Good luck

Thanks, turning off numlock seems to have done the trick. The onboard keyboard is working fine now.

You have no idea how happy I am. I have tried literally dozens of Linux distros and the only ones that would even give me a screen image were the RedHat clones, and then only at 800x600. I get 1024x768 now. My PC is BSD only now but I still dualboot XP on my laptop. I might make the move completely away from WIndows before it´s over.

Now, can you tell me where the file I need to configure for my wireless card is located? The one I need to add the encryption key to.

This is what I get from ifconfig:

Code:

        channel -1 authmode OPEN powersavemode OFF powersavesleep 100
        rtsthreshold 2312 protmode CTS
        wepmode OFF weptxkey 1
It's a 2WIRE wireless card, this might not be the exact model: http://www.2wire.com/?p=118

I think it must be an Orinco clone, Netstumbler works with it in WIndows.

I'm using 128bit WEP encryption and haven't set the key yet in the OS. I'll have to do that before I can log on

Try this with each device letter, at konsole:

example:

Code:
ifconfig fxp0 up
That's about it what i can offer at the moment, I'll hope it helps
