During installation my keyboard layout defaulted to Canadian English. I tested the layout in the provided text box and the layout worked properly.
Post-installation, my system keyboard layout is set to Canadian French, and I’m not sure how to change it back to English system-wide. I know I can do so within Xfce’s Keyboard Settings tool, but this does not affect the login screen.
EDIT with solution:
localectl to get your current system layouts. You’ll get an output similar to this:
System Locale: LANG=en_CA.UTF-8 VC Keymap: us X11 Layout: us
To change your VC Keymap, run
sudo localectl set-keymap us replacing ‘us’ with your desired keymap. For a list of possible keymaps, run
To change your X11 Keymap (and this was the issue in my case) run
sudo localectl set-x11-keymap us replacing ‘us’ with your desired keymap. For a list of possible x11 keymaps, run
