• Special Characters & symbols active when typing on new install.


    I installed Antergos this morning and since installation I am experiencing issues with special characters or symbols appearing as I am attempting to execute code in the terminal or type in applications. Such symbols include é when typing / from the main keyboard layout, # for tilda, and a host of other symbols. These seem to persist after multiple reboots.

    Where can I look to rectify this issue?

    UPDATE
    The issue was fixed by:

    localectl set-x11-keymap us

  • cat /etc/locale.conf
    
    cat /etc/vconsole.conf
    

    will give you what is setup for systemwide

    and:
    to change settings inside locale.conf

    #sudo nano /etc/locale.gen
    #sudo locale-gen

  • @joekamprad Keymap is US but

    LC_COLLATE=en_CA.UTF-8
    

    even after reboot.

    Update

    en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
    

    in /etc/locale.gen

    Give me the output of this two commands plz.:

    cat /etc/locale.conf
    cat /etc/vconsole.conf
    
    LANG=en_US.UTF-8
    
    KEYMAP=us
    

    I ran localectl set-x11-keymap us-utf-8 but this may be the wrong input IMO.

    localectl status

    System Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8
    VC Keymap: n/a
    X11 Layout: us-utf-8
