• Keyboard layout won't change at all, any ideas?


    System Locale: LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
    VC Keymap: uk
    X11 Layout: gb
    X11 Model: pc105
    X11 Options: terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp

    I have an x270 with a uk keyboard layout.
    All of my configurations point to a uk keyboard layout (Lenovo x270).
    But for some reason, the ’ " ’ is switched with ’ @ ’ and the the GBP Sterlin Pound Symbol is replaced with #, it seems like it’s following the US layout instead. it’s very annoying especially when you’re programming,

    It wasn’t like this before, it changed recently after I updated the system.

    Any ideas guys? I checked the xorg configs as well, it all points towards the right keymap settings :/

    Many thanks!

  • still on GNOME Desktop?
    what gives: localectl

    As i know you can set every keyboard you want inside gnome-control-center

    Thank you so much! I wasn’t aware of this setting, mine was defaulted to English (US) a quick change to English (US) helped!

    Many thanks,

  • English (GB) is what you set it to ;)
    There is a bug for Gnome DE that after install keyboard is set to default (US)
