December 4th, 2008, 08:39 PM
I've been trying to use ubuntu nearly for 3 three years. Since back then turkish q layout has been a problem with ubuntu. I do not understand why this problem hasn't been fixed yet. For every new version of ubuntu since then I managed to solve the problem by ubuntuforums.I am again trying to migrate to ubuntu. But this time no help from the forums. I could not find any posts related with this issue.Anyway the problem is: despite I adjusted the keyboard as turkish-q in the beginning of installation and after installation. The layout is still standard us. Keyboard preferences says it is tr-q but in Xorg.conf there is no trace of keyboard layout. What should I do thanks,

solved the problem. It turned out that Turkish Alt-Q was not the one that I look for. I took a close look to the map and I figured out that Turkish Q (with dead keys) was the one. ı removed alt+q and put that one. Also ı added Turkish as a language. So everything works now.

Deleted one duplicate thread and marked this one as solved (you have the option in the thread tools menu).
