• Setting Keyboard-layout for lightdm-webkit2-greeter???

    I search and search … how can i change settings for lightdm-webkit-greeter?

    stuff like autologin keyboardlayout e.t.c…

    Only thing i find is this:
    and here:

  • The answer is simple. LightDM uses the keyboard map defined in the /etc/vconsole.conf file. The same keyboard map is used in virtual terminals (Ctl+Alt+F1…7).

    For example, this sets English (US) leyboard to be used in LightDM:


    This one sets English (UK) keyabord for LigthDM and virtual terminals:


    The country code is not an obvious choice. For example, gb is a wrong code for an English (UK) keyboard. uk is the correct one.

  • cat  /etc/vconsole.conf                                   

    but lightdm do not have this… (z=y)

    killajoe]# localectl status
       System Locale: LANG=de_DE.UTF-8
           VC Keymap: de
          X11 Layout: de
  • can or can’t someone reproduce this?

    Find this:

  • Did you try the solution proposed in the post you linked?

    OK, it seems that lightdm finds the locale settings in /etc/environment.
    (According to this: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Softwar … DM/Design/ ; look for /etc/environment)
    If I set the locale in that file, lightdm uses the correct locale.

  • @karasu no same as before lightdm does not take the locale…

  • It should take the same layout as your GNOME system settings. Could you try installing GNOME Web (epiphany) and see if your keyboard layout works with it?

  • @lots.0.logs : when gnome is startet settings are working, also epiphany… it seems to effect only to the password field inside lightdm greeter (also gtk-greeter) … it looks loke lightdm is running by a different “user” ?
