Keyboard layout settings / QUERTZ keyboard

Unread post by 0xdeadbeef »

Is there any easy way to support other keyboard layouts like German QUERTZ? I guess I'd have to dig into the Linux image but wonder if there is an easier way.

In terminal type "loadkeys de".

Or put a script in your scripts folder:

#!/bin/bash
loadkeys de
exit 0

Ah OK, thanks. Haven't messed around with Linux for at least a decade.
As a side note: is there any specific reason NOT to use a localized keyboard. I actually though about getting a US QUERTY keyboard just for MiSTer since actually e.g. the C64 didn't have a German keyboard either. Then again, apart from the C64 and being a MiSTer default, I couldn't find a proper reason to go this way. And US QUERTY keyboards are much more difficult to get around here.
