After I’ve installed antergos on my Desktop computer & absolutely loving it, I’ve also intalled it on my Laptop.
But I’ve had the same issue on both installations: Even after selecting the Swiss German keyboard layout in the graphical installer, X does not load the correct keyboard layout on boot. In the TTY the layout is fine, though.
While I’ve managed to fix the issue on the desktop with little effort by modifying /etc/locale.conf, it’s not that easy on my laptop.
What should be noted first is that X is perfectly capable of using the correct keyboard layout. I can set it after booting with the command ‘setxkbmap -layout ch’ and it works perfectly. But that setting does disapper as soon as i reboot, so that’s not the solution.
I’ve also tried setting the keyboard layout using ‘localectl set-x11-keymap -layout ch’, which changes the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf, but after all it still does not chose the right keyboard layout at boot. The current contents of the file are:
# Read and parsed by systemd-localed. It's probably wise not to edit this file # manually too freely. Section "InputClass" Identifier "system-keyboard" MatchIsKeyboard "on" Option "XkbLayout" "ch" EndSection
I’ve also tried some different configurations I’ve found in the wiki and other pages but none seemed to work for me.
Thank you very much!
