Estonian keyboard layout in Slitaz?
  • nielandernielander February 2011


    I just got Slitas 3.0 aircrack version on my Acer Aspire One(model A110L), beacause to my understandment it's the best linux distro on my lightweight notebook.

    Anyway...I can't find a estonian keyboard layout from setup anywhere...

    I was wondering is it really missing from Slitaz, or is it just me that I can't find it...?

    If it is missing, then is there a way to get it from somewhere...?

    I'm kinda new to linux OS, so it would be great, if you could make help as simple as possible...

    Thank you...

    Install xorg-setxkbmap.tazpkg
    Open terminal as root:
    # setxkbmap ee
    Test,is this the right keymap?
    Yes, then add the bold to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Keyboard0"
    Driver "kbd"
    Option "XkbLayout" "ee"

    Thanks for your answer...

    I installed xorg-setxkbmap with package manager, but "setxkbmap ee" command gives me "-sh: setxkbmap: not found"

    And checking files for xorg-setxkbmap from package manager gives me somesort of "file lost! /usr/bin/setxkbmap"

    Of course i'm not sure that a installed it right...

    Also /etc/X11/xorg.conf file is missing...

    Something is broken on your system.
    There is a receipt for xorg-setxkbmap which indicates it was installed.
    But tazpkg check indicates there is no /usr/bin/setxkbmap :(
    I would verify there is no /usr/bin/setxkbmap
    which setxkbmap
    should return
    Open xterm with a working internet connection.
    Become root: su -
    Password: root
    root@slitaz: tazpkg recharge
    followed by tazpkg get-install xorg-setxkbmap --forced
    If the installation fails:
    Copy/paste the output from the above commands

    To make the xorg.conf boot into slitaz, kill the xserver with ctrl+alt+ backspace
    In console logon as root, password: root
    Run the next 3 commands
    X -configure
    mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    You should be back in X windows
    Now open /etc/X11/xorg.conf with leafpad or nano text editor as root to add whats in bold in my previous post.

    Keymap will activate if you kill/restart xserver as instructed above or on reboot.
    If your running slitaz as a livecd and not installed none of this persists after a reboot.

Howdy, Stranger!
