    Red face Change Keyboard Layout on Server Permanently

    Hi all

    whenever I reboot my server they keyboard layout is reset to US layout.

    I tried editing /etc/default/keyboard but to no avail...

    dpkg-reconfigure console-data will correct the layout, but only until I restart.

    This is on Ubuntu Server 11.04 with home dirs encrypted.

    already tried this:

    actually I just solved it, thanks to your comment.

    I had put an invalid string in /etc/default/keyboard
    dpkg-reconfigure console-setup creates a new initramfs and there it notified me that it couldn't find the defined symbolds from /etc/default/keyboard

    so I looked at the dir /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/ and there I saw the correct layout.
    then ran dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
    and it works now

    I am having the same problem with Ubuntu Server.

    But I'm a bit of a noob.

    Could you please explain your solution in some more basic steps?

    Many thanks

    I'm on 11.10 Oneiric, and you have to run
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
    to reconfigure the console keyboard layout
